    This sounds fantastic! However, I am not able to attend in person. I realize it sounds like more of a “hand on” event, but will any sessions be broadcast?

    • Emma Gosalvez says:

      Thanks for your interest! It won’t be broadcasted in a traditional way, where you would watch a session online. We are expecting to do a few things with Meerkat and/or Periscope, but we are still working on how that might work and we don’t expect to offer the event online in a complete format. This is going to be a different, new kind of event for some different, new technology, so we are working through some ideas! We will update later as part of a future article on MAKEiT once we establish what we might do. Please stay tuned!
