- Not having to travel to the conference is a big bonus for those with low budgets and limited spare time.
- It’s a 2 day conference so you can either attend Day1 and/or Day2.
- It seems Day 1 focuses more towards Web Designers and Day to more towards Web Developers.
- The ability to login and watch the sessions again online is also a big bonus.
- To interact you don’t even need a webcam or mic you can ask questions directly via chat, and only the presenters appear on camera. So, webcams and mics are not necessary for attendance!
