Hangouts: Host a Hangout On Air (Jan 07)

Host a GCI Hangout On Air with at least 3 guests (may be mentors, students, users, friends, etc). At least one participant should be an active developer (which may be yourself).

Hangout hosts should be at least casually familiar with PySoy and current Google Code-in work being done so as to lead topics, but can pull in people who can talk about more technical aspects as needed. If you need help on topics or otherwise preparing for the hangout ask the mentors or other GCI students for help.

As host, its your job to introduce speakers, manage time, and keep the hangout flowing such that the resulting video is both informative and enjoyable to watch. Give each presenter around 5 minutes of time, typically 2-3 minutes for a presentation plus another 2-3 minutes for discussion and questions between topics. Be prepared to move discussion along if discussion gets too lengthy or re-arrange presentation order if a student isn't ready.

Hangout should go live Jan 07 at 20:00UTC (you should be connected 20-30 minutes early to greet other students and guests) and run 20-30 minutes. Test your video, audio, lighting, software, network, etc with a test Hangout an hour or more before the Hangout so you have enough time to fix any issues.

As you cannot claim two tasks at the same time, you cannot complete this task the same week as you do another weekly Hangout On Air task.

Post a link to the resulting Youtube video to finish this task.
