  2. in comments to this article on Habr
  3. in the comments right during the stream - on YouTube and Instagram

Priority is given to questions asked on Instagram. Then there were questions during the stream, then Habr comments. If you are not on the air, but you asked a question, they will answer it anyway.

Will there be a translation into Russian?

Yes. The air will be on a dual screen, and a girl will connect to Richard and will translate everything he says into Russian and help him with the translation of difficult questions.

Will there be air recording and decryption?

Yes. We always make transcripts of all meetings that we conduct online in our Instagram . Decryption will appear on Habré in a week.
