Starting tomorrow, here’s the conference website.

    looking forward to this! my first Nim conference and also this my first comment on lobsters!

    I think the organizers did a great job:

    • it is in interesting format: an online conference with pre-recorded video and opportunity to interact. I guess it aims for maximum impact with limited effort.
    • the content is very varied, videos for beginners, a nice game framework (nico), nim on Game Boy, nim on ESP8266 microchip, web stuff, the much awaited talk by Araq on the new memory management system (arc/orc), mratsim on multithreading, treeform on UI development with fidget and much more…
    • unfortunately not much in my domain (data science), hopefully next time (this will be done again next year, right?) I will be able to contribute something.

    Overall I think it deserves much more publicity than what has been getting yet (but that is also a feature of Nim, which would definitely deserve to be more known and used).

      We’ve received one additional (awesome) talk, making it total of 15 talks!

      The first talk starts at 11:00 UTC (in 3 hours when this comment is published), and the last one finishes around 21:00 UTC.
      These 10 hours include time for questions, breaks, etc.; if you watch all the talks at some later time back to back, it is a bit more than 6.5 hours of just talks.
