A useful guide to Twitch here: https://www.lifewire.com/what-is-twitch-4143337

You don’t need a Twitch account to watch the talk only if you want to take part in the chat.

You won’t need an account to ask questions in the Q&A though.
We will also have our online conference room available on Zoom from 6.45pm for anyone that wants to talk about the subject during and after the event. The chat room will be available until around half an hour after the SiTP event ends for local Q&A Chat. We will have all microphones muted during the talk … but you will be able to use the online text chat facility while the talk is on.
