GRUX Online Social
Come meet your peers
We're excited to host a virtual social event in a fully 3D environment! There will be different rooms for different themes, so you can find like-minded people easier, but feel free to discuss anything anywhere. There is a limit of 20 people per room. When you join a room that is already full, you will only be able to use the chat. If it happens, try to join another room. If rooms are not full, feel free to switch between them to meet new people!
On the day of the event:
You can join the rooms on mobile, but the experience will be smoother on desktop
You can select an avatar or use one you would have created before (see below)
You can use your real name, but you don’t have to (feel free to add pronouns you would like people to use to address you, next to the name you picked)
You can always mute people in the room (i.e. if it gets too loud around you)
And finally, respect each other and have fun!
Come back on Nov 19th to access the social event at 8AM PST / 4PM GMT (after the second run of the conference). The rooms will stay open for at least 2 hours.
If you want your own avatar, you can create it on readyplayer.me, and you can find a guide to do so, on https://blog.readyplayer.me/mozilla-hubs-custom-3d-avatar/.
The event is hosted on Mozilla Hubs. The tool is easy to grasp, but If you want to make sure you know all the tricks before the event, here is a video on “How to get started with Mozilla Hubs”.
