Conference App (Zoom)

The General Assembly will take place as a video conference. We will use the platform Zoom for that.

You will also be able to join the meeting from your browser by clicking on the links we will send you – but for better quality we strongly recommend downloading the Zoom Desktop App or the Zoom Mobile App (Android or iPhone).

If you are using the Desktop App or the Web Client, make sure that you have a headset connected and preferably also a camera so others can see you when you speak.

In any case, try to make sure that you join from a place with stable internet connection and not too much noise around you. If you are using a camera, it might be useful to check it before the meeting (e.g. that you are sufficiently illuminated and the camera does not show things you do not want others to see).
