Join us for an evening of lightning talks in Rosemont! A lightning talk is a five-minute presentation of 20 slides where each slide auto-progresses every 15 seconds. It’s not only an exercise in conciseness for the speaker, but it’s also pretty entertaining for the audience.
This casual evening will be accompanied by five prepared lightning talks and one extemporaneous talk. Someone will prepare a slideshow, and Paul Lockwood will deliver a lightning talk as he sees the slides for the first time. See our speaker section below for a list of speakers and their topics.
We hope to see you there!
