“Enlighten us, but make it quick” is the mantra and key to Ignite talks. This truly fun, exciting and unique presentation format brings together technology, arts and communications types. Here’s how it works:
Ignite Charlotte features a series of 5 minute talks by community members who use 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. Various talks like Creepy Attracts Creepy, Feminism Is For Everybody, The Parallels of DevOps & Yoga, What GigaBit Fiber Can Mean For Charlotte, Why I Game & You Should Too, & Engineering Is Basically Magic are thought up by those of you in the community who have the guts to get on stage to enlighten us with your creativity. All are welcome to submit a talk for consideration two months prior to the event - talk submission rules can be found on our website. The best talk ideas and descriptions above all other criteria are selected. Community members gather at a specific venue, this year we'll be at The Chop Shop NoDa, to hear the "talks" by community members. All talks are recorded and posted on our YouTube channel for all the world to see.
