We hope you enjoyed the first day of Snap!Con!. Version 9 is out, and we can't wait to see what you all will build with it! Check out the developer release notes.
Day 2 of Snap*!*Con starts today, and we have several conference logistics and reminders to share. (Apologies as well! We appreciate your patience as we worked through the technical difficulties of Day 1. Day 2 will hopefully be better! )
We will also be releasing videos in the weeks after the conference, so don't worry if you missed something.

We'll start the day with another round of workshops both online and in-person. After a short break, we'll continue with lightning talks and talks. Then there will be a food break and another opportunity to participate in the escape room! After the break, we'll continue with workshops that will be online, followed by another round of lightning talks and talks. Finally, we'll close the day with a keynote from Monica Rikic, who will show us how she navigates the intersection of art students and algorithms with Snap!.
Sign up for the Escape Room!
Don’t forget to sign up for the hybrid escape room happening every day through the lunch break to save the Spaceship Alonzsa23 and its passengers. Ask our staff how to enroll for the mission!, or message @bromagosa in the Snap! Forums.
TeachMeet (In-Person in Barcelona)

See you soon!

Reminders and Other Information
(New this year) Forum Chat
This year, we've enabled chatting in the Snap! forum, just for Snap!Con attendees.
If you're signed into the Snap!Forum, you should see a speech bubble in the upper right corner of the screen. There a a couple of channels "Snap!Con 2023 Auditorium" (to discuss events happening in the main room), and "Snap!Con 2023 Hallway Chat" for general discussions.
Use these chats to bridge the space between online and in-person attendees.
Note that these chats are just for people attending Snap!Con. If you already have signed into the Snap! Forum, you should have been added to the group.

Note for Presenters
A few items to remember:
- Review the screen share instructions above. If you have multiple speakers, they will be allowed to speak - just mute/unmute yourself.
- During the session, you can chat with participants in the Zoom room - we recommend you post to everyone and not privately so everyone can learn from each other. For any pre or post session discussion, please use the Snap! forum post for your session.
- You can edit your session to add materials to share with your session attendees, update your abstract, and add an event subtitle.
- Add a profile picture to your account so your headshot can appear on the program with your event. Once you are logged into the Snap!Con website, you can edit your user profile.
We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone soon! Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
See you soon!
