It is linux.conf.au tradition to hold Lightning Talks during the last session of the Conference, on Friday afternoon.
+
Although not an official social event of the Conference, Birds of a Feather - or BoFs as they are known - allow Delegates to meet around a particular topic or interest. BoFs usually occur during lunchtime, or after the main Conference presentations for the day.  
  
===What is the format for linux.conf.au Lightning Talks?===

==== Instructions ====
* 5 minutes, including presentation setup. More setup, less talky talky.
+
Edit the table below to claim a BoF, and provide a way for people to contact you.  
* You will be counted down.
+
''Rooms will be added later.'' See also: [[mw:Help:Tables|Table Markup Help]].
