It would be cool! Maybe we could all prepare some topics to talk about?

Nice idea! Will need to think about timings. I think we have more active Europeans here more than anything else.

I'd be down for that. Maybe have a theme to help people think about what to talk about. With everyone basically under house arrest at the moment it's a good opportunity to get people across the world in at the same time 😅

Is Zoom good or are we a bit concerned about their privacy record?

I would vote for hangouts. Easy, scalable and free.
Good plan! Any other options? I’ll start a poll shortly with times and methods so we can get a consensus. Will be good to have a theme too.

If somebody would like to volunteer to manage this would be more than happy to support.

Does Hangouts or Meet allow grid view? (it is the only thing I like from zoom XD).
Hangouts does provide gridview. As I know it's default if all have video enabled or it's a simple setting I did somewhen.
And because it's 100% free forever I think it's a better choice than zoom. And hangouts works without any software/app and is cross-platform.

Cool! 🥳

Proposal for topics:
1. How is it working from home?
2. Let's share our stories! (like our background, what do we do and why)
3. Cool stuff in dev, design worlds?

I would second the first one "working from home".

I third it the working from home! I'm interested to see how you are all doing, and will probably get so jealous. :P

Yea I think for the first one introducing each other properly would be pretty cool. And working from home is relevant for sure.

I also don't really care about privacy concerns. I mean, I'm signed up here with my full name and a picture of myself, I think that ship sailed long ago. That said I have no preference on platform, so long as it's decided before the meeting and we can all get set up properly.

I've added a poll to the post! I've tried to come up with times that work for the majority of users.

Asian, Oceanian and other more eastern users are a little left out here on account of being early morning but could always rotate times if they become a regular thing and there was demand from users in these locations.

By far the majority of active visitors are from Europe and Americas. Our handful of wonderful African users are served nicely in line with Europe times too.
