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.
