About this Event

Join this joint meetup and listen to (and present, if you'd like) lightning talks on various topics to wrap up the year.

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 and be broadly interesting to attendees. It won't be an intense, heavily structured point system. Please let us know if you are interested in speaking by filling out this form:

Not interested in speaking? No problem! All attendees can listen to short, bite-size talks on a broad range of topics.

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.
