Tricircle shared a room with Sahara, and stay there for the first half.

Around 6 persons joined the session. Due to the network issue(on the lab side) I am not able to logon to my environment to do the training based on live environment. I have to play some recorded clips, during the playing, we discussed a lot of topics, from the overall architecture and functionalities, and whether it support cross Neutron L2 network, and how to setup the environment to experience it. I can't remember all detail information. It seems 45 minutes is too short for on-boarding session, lots of other topics have not been discussed. We leave the room after Sahara began their session, two projects in same room will be quite noise, many people will talk at the same time. After the session, one guy continue to talk with me about Tricircle for around half an hour.

Obviously, on-boarding session is necessary for a project, some may be contributors, some may be not, but there are lots of people want to learn a project in more detail, it'll help a project to grow contributors and (potential) operators.

Best Regards

This is a thread for anyone that participated in the onboarding rooms,
on either the presenter or audience side. Because we all went into this
creating things from whole cloth, I'm sure there are lots of lessons

If you ran a room, please post the project, what you did in the room,
what you think worked, what you would have done differently. If you
attended a room you didn't run, please provide feedback about which one
it was, and what you thought worked / didn't work from the other side of
the table.

Hopefully we can consolidate some of that feedback for best practices
going forward.
