Hi,

We hold a lot of events so that everyone can choose which event is right for them in terms of content and schedule.

Of course, we don’t expect for everyone to attend everything. Regarding the Mega Meetups - I recommend joining as it will be a different event than usual, at a high level and with a lot of fun!

It is rather an online event than a meetup. Obviously, it is better than absolutely nothing during pandemic. I hope it won't become a good practice after the Covid.

Online events or conferences are good for one-to-many or several-to-many formats of sharing the information or presenting something. The bigger the audience is the more difficult it becomes to handle Q&A or live conversations. My expectation would be to have an ability to ask questions and see answers in more convenient way than we had before. Please also think about some smaller targeted hands-on or workshop sessions with subject matter experts from Waze side.

I greatly appreciate the effort that staff are making to create a virtual meeting space amidst the difficulties and challenges that the pandemic imposes on us. I like the initiative and I think that everyone should program their virtual assistance taking into account their personal interests.

Will the Europe meetup be at a reasonable hour? APAC is typically on the other side of the world from Europe (mostly +8 to +12 hrs GMT) so holding it earlier in the day (say 8am GMT) will help us join in during our evenings instead of having to make an attempt at waking up at 2am.

The point of having a meet-up is to meet-up with all the buddies from abroad. Obviously, this does not happen during an online-meetup.

Clearly I won't spend a weekend sitting in my home-office and attending a packed schedule of online-presentations. :-/

looking for the 'thumbs down' reaction... fail.
'meetup not recognised' exception thrown.
restarting...
:lol:

Honestly, guys. Am I the only one thinking such 'meetups' are complete mockery? ;) Just stop calling them meetups and it'll be fine.

Sorry, could not resist :oops:
