Additionally, Tiki Developers will be able to show off their latest work and Tiki admins can give a virtual tour of their own sites.

The seminars are free for anyone with an interest in Tiki, wikis, and content management systems (CMS). Participants attending the seminars will use the Tiki + BigBlueButton integration. This integration features full audio and visual communication, chatting, desktop sharing, and much more... and requires only a browser! The seminars also allow the Tiki Community to "dogfood" these features!

The first webinar, on January 19, will feature a demonstration of Tiki Draw and Tiki Docs, a developer-led discussion of several upcoming features, and include plenty of open time for community discussion.

All Tiki Community members are encouraged to attend as well as present their own work. For details, see http://tiki.org/Webinars and the Tiki Community calendar: http://info.tiki.org/Calendar.
