Google Chrome is highly recommended to participate in the conference. Prior to the conference make sure Google Chrome is up to date. You can confirm this within Google Chrome by clicking on the three dots in the right-hand corner, clicking Help and clicking About Google Chrome.

We recommend participating via computer but using Google Chrome on a tablet or smartphone will also work. You may also download the Hopin app in your phone's app store to participate.
