Show & Tell last week was a historical occasion - LARK's first online event ever. Online report tells us 14 people logged in. Our guest speakers presented their interesting projects and people sent questions and comments, mainly via chat. Technology behaved most of the time and, when it didn't, Alycia Bailey was on the case promptly. Altogether, a very enjoyable event thanks to everyone's participation.
Our presenters have kindly made their slides and links available for sharing.
