What's a lightning talk?
Lightning talks are designed to be short presentations between five and ten minutes long, but are usually capped at five minutes. Talks are arranged one after the other during the sessions. Lightning talks are brief which requires the speaker to make their point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. This causes the audience to be more attentive to the speaker and gain a broader array of knowledge from the presentations given.
Attendees interested in presenting can signup to give a short, 5 minute talk on any topic they want (preferably technology-related please). Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes. This is meant to be a fun, light competition. It won't be an intense, heavily structured point system. Please let us know if you interested in speaking by filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/UwcSjYVjTpxdDHS22
Not interested in speaking? No problem! Other attendees can learn about multiple about multiple topics.
