these are the rules we used for the bi-weekly demo sessions at DEF
“a safe space to show off your projects”
- generally 15 mins per slot: 10 mins for demo, 5 mins for Q&A, YMMV
- bugs and issues are expected. if we do a Def Demos without glitches, we have failed.
- if presenter is having issues or app is being slow, we don’t complain, we wait patiently
- if someone bravely shares their whole screen and receives a sensitive notification, you must close your eyes
- moderators will read chat and pass along questions & praise and especially praise
- free scope creep, all you can eat!
- turn on your video if you’re down, otherwise we are all just random usernames on the Internet
- demos are default-private. please don’t post other people’s work on social media w/o permission. we post a few screenshots in
#mouths-only-sidechatbut if you’d prefer we didn’t do that, just say so. sometimes Varley edits together recap videos, but we will always ask if you’re cool sharing
