Just show up and present your stuff! You'll have 5-15 minutes to show people what you've done, or an idea you have, while sharing your screen, and be open to answer questions, receive feedback — basically, jam with us.

The event will start with presentations over Zoom and conclude with a hangout and Q+A on our community Discord.
