I'm having technical issues watching.

Please do not comment on video/audio playback issues in the chat. We have technicians moderating each session for issues on our end. In most cases, video playback issues are due to temporary issues with your internet connection.


The first and best troubleshooting step is to REFRESH YOUR BROWSER.


  • Check your internet connection and computer first. Most issues with streaming videos are due to temporary local issues and are not related to the event.
  • Use a modern device/browser. This event works best if you use the Chrome or Safari browser, and note that Internet explorer is not supported.
  • Disconnect from corporate or other VPNs. If you are on a corporate network, this may interfere with the video stream. If you are unable to do so, consider using another device, such as a smartphone.

I don't have a username/password to login to the event?

Is it possible to get notified when a session is about to start?
