About this event

"Q" and "A" are short of "Question" and "Answer". All of us have so many questions about different things and we are exploring, searching for answers. In some ways, we find the answer by ourselves. In other ways, we find the answer through others' ideas or help. Like sharing ideas, this time we talk about questions we have and answers may talkers gave.
