FOSS4G 2021 is an online event that will take place on the following stack.
To login, you have to access your registration order. Open the email that was sent by firstname.lastname@example.org when you bought your ticket. The subject of the email should start with "[FOSS4G-2021]Your order:.
At the bottom of that email there must be a link to View order details. Click on that link and you will find a login button for each attendee registered using that order:
This button will only be available during the week of the event.
You can use that button on different browsers and computers and it will always open your session.
Do not share this email or the related link with anyone or you may be blocked from the event.
If you can't find the email with your order, you can request a copy of the email on the following url: https://registration.2021.foss4g.org/OSGeo/FOSS4G/resend/ You must use the same email you used to register.
Once you login for the first time, you have to complete your profile details.
First, fill in your name and lastname. This is the name you will use to interact with the rest of the attendees.
Then, you may want to upload a photo. This photo will be visible to all attendees of the conference. Make sure you choose one according to the professional profile you want to be associated with. It is perfectly fine not to use a photo if you want to keep your privacy. But if you are interested in interacting with other attendees, uploading a photo here will help.
Finally, there are some other fields to complete your profile. There is no mandatory field to fill in, but it is important that you use the proper keywords if you want to have meaningful interactions during the conference.
All attendees are listed at the Meet your Peers! tab. You will be listed there as well with all the details you filled in on your profile.
You can always complete the data later by either clicking on your name at the bottom left of the page, or going directly to your preferences.
We highly recommend you enable notifications in your desktop to make sure you don't miss anything from the event like private messages and broadcasts.
Anywhere you see someone's name you can open their profile. There, you can choose if you want to send a text message, request a video call or block them so they can't interact with you anymore.
A blocked user cannot send any direct messages to you and you cannot send any direct messages to them. You can always unblock them later.
If you feel the need to block someone, check our Code of Conduct. If that person is failing to follow it, let us know so we can act on it before they make someone else uncomfortable.
