Parents - my company is thinking of hosting an optional, free biscuit making class over zoom in the evening for anyone who wants to participate and/or bring their kids. What time is best? 6:30? 7? Not sure when bedtime is for elementary/middle schoolers these days.

If it's a school night, the event should be over by 6. (Dinner, bath, and bedtime by 8 - elementary schoolers)

Are we making Bisquick biscuits? We’ll be done in 15 min. so 6:30 works.

funny

If it’s during the week, I would participate if it was 5-6pm. Earlier is sports/homework, later is dinner/bed. (5 & 8 year olds). Plus then the biscuits can be ready for dinner :)

7pm you may get older kids. Younger ones (and their parents) will be less likely. Not the end of the world.

They’re from scratch! It’s an hourlong event with a chef who’s quite well regarded / has some interesting stories. Most people are saying they want the event to start at 7p, but I suspect that’s skewed towards non-parents. That said, I’m wondering if parents would even want to come even if it were earlier (6 or 6:30). Unfortunately we cannot do 4-5:30p as there’s a lot of internal resistance against that time on a regular day (lots of EOD meetings), and this would be an optional event too. Thoughts?

I'm a parent of 7 & 10 year olds and 7 would be perfect for our family. Earlier you run into dinner and sports.

6 is a tough time for kids. From 5-7 they are either hungry or assholes. I still think 6 is the best time, though. Anyone who wants to join with their kids at least has a chance to plan and try to attend. Let them know they can freeze biscuits and bake them later. Making and cutting may be as far as a parent with a young one can get.

Has anyone seen any unique places to find UX portfolios or post jobs other than the usual suspects? Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went. Even the portfolio sites like Dribbble and Behance don’t seem that same.

If we thought about it back in March, we probably could’ve predicted which companies would do well, like Zoom, Amazon, Instacart, etc. And invested accordingly. Anyone have any thoughts for forecasting the next few months? Opportunities to take advantage of?
