We’ve scheduled the conference to reasonably accommodate the global Shiny community. However, there may be registrants who find it hard to participate in their time zones. For this reason, we will be recording conference events and publishing them online for free. We want to make sure everyone in the community has access to the materials presented. If you have questions for the Keynote Panel with the RStudio Shiny Team, you may submit them prior to the conference.
