First Friday


Event details



The Raleigh Times has invited us to be a part of their monthly First Friday celebration on the evening of August 5th!  You may remember that our recruitment event with them two years ago was one of our more successful.  This is a great opportunity to get a ton of people signed up to help the kids at Duke Children's Hospital.  Let's do it!


Date: August 5th, 2016

Time: 6PM load-in, event runs from 7PM-11PM

Location: Raleigh Times - 14 E Hargett St, Raleigh, NC 27601


We'll be running multiple video game demos, but otherwise, this will be focused completely on recruitment, so be ready to talk to members of the public and explain the Extra Life program to them.  Ideally, we could use at least four people to help out.  Please let us know ASAP!  It's going to be a big one!  See you there!

Thanks to the guys in the Extra Life Stream Team and @AndrewRDU, I am moving on as planned with streaming on location at First Friday! I could use a lot of "hands on deck" for this one as there will be a lot of moving parts to make sure this works properly.
I have tested this setup in my controlled environment and have verified that video comes through clear when my PC is tethered to a cell phone. However, I noticed an issue when my cell phone goes to sleep, the Internet connection goes to a crawl as one would expect of a cellular connection in that situation, but I think I may have a solution for that.
I'm really pumped for this and the only thing I'm worried about now is weather, but its looking to clear up for the stream! If you can, please help in promoting this as I'm hoping this new perspective could be really good for Extra Life (not to mention make me proud that I took this huge
