We’re Going Live… On LinkedIn

Published Mar 28, 2019

The marketing and product teams here at Pendo are always exploring new ways to engage and inspire product managers. That’s why we launched ProductCraft just over a year ago, and why we’re bringing the editorial site to life this May with ProductCraft: The Conference.

And so, when we caught wind of LinkedIn’s new live streaming capabilities, we wanted in. After some vetting with the LinkedIn product team and some technical hurdles to overcome with a cool tool called Wirecast, we became one of the first 25 companies around the world to join the LinkedIn Live alpha program.

On March 26th, we successfully completed our first live broadcast, a Q&A with Pendo’s data scientist, Suja Thomas. It was a blast to see so many comments, questions, likes and views roll in over the minutes, hours and days to follow the session.

As part of the alpha program, we’ll host LinkedIn Live sessions weekly over a four-week period (and hopefully beyond). We hope you’ll join us. Check out the lineup below, and tune in via LinkedIn!
