@Wes W Is there anything in particular that I have to do in order to join in on Thursday?
I would recommend launching the software before Thursday to get all situated. Preparing gives you the opportunity to set up your camera and microphone config privately. On Thursday, Paul will post a link and all you need to do is click to join in :)
@Wes W I also signed up at the Zoom website but I think that wasn't really necessary (unless I want to host a zoom meeting?)
Not necessary, but you can do things like set your display name. It's nice to have the account handy and prepared if you need a meeting in the future!
