Event Details

1 Spatial Theme + 15 Seconds Slides * 20 Slides = 5 Minutes of Spatial Glory

Ignite Spatial: Boston is an Ignite event with a spatial twist. If you had five minutes on stage to talk spatial, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers.

Ignite Spatial: Boston will be held on Wednesday, December 2nd, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Microsoft NERD, near the Kendall Station T stop on the Red Line. The event is free, however, due to limited space at the venue you must RSVP on this page.

If you would like to speak, please submit a proposal. All talks will be recorded and posted on the web after the event. We will post a planned agenda once speaker are finalized
