Livestream QA (Remote)

Volunteers for livestream QA will be remotely watching the conference and can notify us if there are any issues with the feed. We'd prefer two or three volunteers per shift, located in different parts of the US/world. All times below are Pacific Standard Time (PST).

To report a problem (even if you're not an "official" volunteer), you can send a message in the #livestream-qa channel of the Code4Lib Slack.

IRC/Slack (Technical)

Access: Look into technology/procedures to make connecting to, and maintaining a connection to, IRC/Slack less painful. i.e. make sure wifi will allow connection, and someone needs to contact freenode about the sudden influx of people. Demonstrate how to get onto #code4lib during Registration. Offer support for newcomers in #code4lib during the conference.
