HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE CONFERENCE APP?

HOW DO I ASK A QUESTION DURING AN ON-DEMAND SESSION?
Note: Not all on-demand sessions will offer the Q&A feature.
Many presentations include a Q&A button. (If the Q&A button is not visible for a session, the presenter opted out of participating.) You can pose questions to the presenter(s) by pressing the ASK QUESTION button. Type in your question and SUBMIT. Other attendees will see your question in the list, and they can vote it up higher and higher on the list. Each attendee has 100 points to vote questions up the list. If you use all your points, don't worry because you gain back one point every second!
Due to the extended length of the conference, speakers will respond to questions at least every two weeks, possibly more often. You can search for your question (and the response) by entering keyword(s) from your question in the search field at the top.
ARE SLIDES AVAILABLE FOR THE SESSIONS?
Slides and/or handouts supplied by presenters will be available for download on the website and the mobile app within each session’s detail page. If no slides or handouts are available for a session, the presenter did not provide them.
