Requirements for you from their FAQs are:

For bandwidth, we recommend 1Mbits download and 0.5 Mbits upload speed. Users can test their actual bandwidth using
For hardware, we recommend a dual-core CPU with at least 2G of memory. We recommend any operating system capable of running the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox.
For browser, we recommend running either FireFox or Chrome. Why? Both browsers provide excellent support for web real-time communications (WebRTC). Safari, IE, and Edge will work as well, but FireFox and Chrome will deliver better audio in lower bandwidth conditions.
In short, if the user is having any problems (such as audio is garbled or they are periodically getting disconnected), we recommend trying either FireFox or Chrome.

Please keep yourself muted. There are ~3 minutes reserved for questions after each talk.
If you want to ask a question unmute and speak or ask/announce your question in the public chat.
