Weekly "office hours" (short talks, discussions, or demos held virtually) occur every Tuesday.

Want to show the world around your favorite client? Get feedback on a new feature you developed? Encourage other clients to implement your favorite XEP? Or just have a round table discussion about a topic that's close to your heart? This is the place to do it.

Talks and demos can be any length, but we'll strive to keep the whole session to around an hour at maximum (ideally we'll stick to something closer to 30 minutes) including any time for questions (if the speaker wants them).

If no one is signed up on a particular week, join us in the chat anyways for an informal XMPP-themed Happy Hour!
