What are Lightning Talks?

See Lightning talk article on Wikipedia

It is tradition to hold Lightning Talks during the last session of the Conference, on Friday afternoon.

What is the format for Lightning Talks?

  • 5 minutes, including presentation setup. More setup, less talky talky.
  • You will be counted down.
  • Use the table below to sign up
  • There are 8 slots available. If you don't fit into the 8 slots, you can go on the Reserve list.
  • Modifications to this list are auditable. Bumping someone else's Lightning Talk is frowned upon. No one likes #WrathyKathy.

What do I need to do to prepare for my Lightning Talk?

  • We are putting all Lightning Talk slides in one pack to make it easier to run Lightning Talks
  • You MUST email your Lightning Talk slides to
  • Your talk slides will then be added to the master slide deck
  • The slides will be all PDFd. Please send your slides in PDF.
  • If your slides are not emailed through, you won't have them in your Lightning Talk.
  • Slides must be received by Friday lunchtime plskthx.
