Virtual talks are the new norm. In theory, they are great — speakers and attendees can join from around the world, infrastructure is cheap and scalable, recordings are simple. But what is happening in reality with problems like Zoom fatigue? What is and what isn’t working? At Elastic, they have done more than 500 virtual talks and meetups since the pandemic’s start.

This talk from DevRelCon 2021 gives an overview of the development over time, specifics in regions, differences in tooling, and adds some of Philipp’s personal anecdotes.
