[NTG-context] Regular online meet-up

Henning Hraban Ramm texml at fiee.net
Sat Feb 5 13:51:00 CET 2022

You’re invited to join next Tuesday, February 8th, 15:00 CET (UTC+1)

at https://lecture.senfcall.de/hen-rbr-rku-oke

ConTeXt users of all levels are welcome!

Hans offered to give a Q&A session again – please announce subjects 
you’d like to discuss ASAP, so that he can prepare.

Regarding the date:
Denis, who originally suggested Tuesday afternoon, can’t take part due 
to other obligations. I could also offer Wednesday or Thursday.
We could also change the weekday every time, but that might be 
confusing. I would keep the European afternoon time, since that makes 
participation possible for people from America and Asia.
What do you think?

(Same blurb as last time:)

* No special software installation required; most modern browsers should 
work (WebRTC required).
* Open the above URL, accept the privacy statement,
* enter your name,
* click "join" (or "start" if you’re the first),
* click "with microphone", allow your browser to access it, check the audio.
* Your microphone is muted if you join. Activate microphone and/or 
camera with the buttons at the bottom.
* Minimize the default presentation with the "screen" button, bottom right.

* If you’d like to share your screen or upload a file, you can make 
yourself the presenter: Click on your user name, change the setting, 
then you’ll see the "screen sharing" button beside the camera button; 
also there’s now "manage presentations" behind the "plus" button. Beware 
there is only one presenter, so don’t kill someone else’s presentation.

[Technical hints]
* Sound is usually better if you use a headset (less noise for everyone).

* Connection problems are mostly due to low bandwidth or high latency on 
your side, e.g. with mobile connections.
* If audio/video doesn’t work for you, you can still use the text chat.
* Screen sharing needs a lot of bandwidth.

* You can also join with a regular telephone (audio only, of course), 
call +49-6151-86275-22 (German landline); then you must enter a PIN that 
changes every time – if you need it, ask me for it via email. 
Mute/unmute your microphone with "0".

* Please use a name that we recognize from here. Some feel uncomfortable 
with anonymous lurkers.
* Mute your microphone while you’re not talking.
* It’s nice to show your face at least when you join.
* If there are connection problems, stop camera sharing.
* The room is set to “everyone’s a moderator“, I trust you...

See you, Hraban
