TwitchCon 2019 – A Kennethan Wrap-up

This was my first TwitchCon though I have heard of it from their first announcement and my son went several years ago.

Then, even though I was streaming it wasn’t that important to make the tip.

Now, with God Mode Activated and the large number of Twitchers I am follow, it was time to visit.

Several huge takeaways from TwitchCon 2019.

· TwitchCon is a Trade Show. Everyone needs to treat it as such to get the most out of it

· Need a plan as a community and as a streamer/content creator

· Debriefs – daily but if not daily then on the last day. It has to be part of the schedule
