    For instance, a couple of the vendors had Zoom rooms for socializing/networking. What if we have a variety of Zoom rooms around particular interests — not with programming, but with just opportunities to chat? Plugin devs, agency owners, newbies, Blocks, WP-CLI, content creators — all sorts of topics. Of course with designated hosts and some boundaries about not “selling”…
