===What are Lightning Talks?===
+
The seventh annual (except for the year we couldn't be bothered to get up for breakfast) unprofessional delegates networking session will be running on Tuesday evening.  
See [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_talk Lightning talk article on Wikipedia]
+
  
It is linux.conf.au tradition to hold Lightning Talks during the last session of the Conference, on Friday afternoon.
+
* '''When''': Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on). We'll be there by 6; food will probably start being edible between 6:30 and 7. (Unless you're a werewolf, of course.)
 +
* '''Where''': [https://goo.gl/maps/i36iDMb8sNS2 Eastern Beach Reserve], just before the Beach House.
 +
* '''What''': As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
 +
** '''Food''': Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
 +
** '''Soft Drink''': Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
 +
** '''Alcohol''': '''Strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)
 +
** All (any?) profits will benefit the conference charity.
  
===What is the format for linux.conf.au Lightning Talks?===
+
= Attendance =
* 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.

The seventh annual (except for the year we couldn't be bothered to get up for breakfast) unprofessional delegates networking session will be running on Tuesday evening.

  • When: Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on). We'll be there by 6; food will probably start being edible between 6:30 and 7. (Unless you're a werewolf, of course.)
  • Where: Eastern Beach Reserve, just before the Beach House.
  • What: As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
    • Food: Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
    • Soft Drink: Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
    • Alcohol: Strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)
    • All (any?) profits will benefit the conference charity.
