DConf Online 2020 swag is still available for purchase at the DLang Swag Emporium along with other D-themed items. Swag for the 2021 edition will be available a few weeks before the event. Royalties from all purchases in the DLang Swag Emporium are directed to the D Language Foundation General Fund. Money from this fund is used to provide free swag to our speakers and prizes to lucky viewers. (Direct donations to the General Fund are welcome, too!)
Wait, did we say something about prizes for viewers? Yes! Speakers will be monitoring their talk videos for questions in the live chat. After each talk, the speaker will be available in the DConf Online 2021 livestream to answer further questions, elaborate on answers given during the talk, and discuss D and D development in general. Everyone who asks a question during a post-talk livestream will be eligible to win one or more prizes. A winner is selected at the end of each speaker's livestream session, another for the Daily Prize at the end of the livestream each day, and another for the weekend's Grand Prize at the end of the Day Two livestream.
Last year, questioners were rewarded with several different items from the DLang Swag Emporium after the talks, $50.00 Amazon eGift cards for each day, and a $100 Amazon eGift card grand prize for the weekend. Join us in the DConf Online 2021 livestream to see what the prizes will be this year!
