Lightning Talks

What, When & How?

Lightning talks are a space to give a short (strictly less than 5 minutes) talk to the whole conference. They're often funny, slightly strange, or informative -- and they're a great way to give a first talk at a conference.

We will have lightning talks this year, during the closing session on Friday before the closing Keynote.

Lightning Talk submissions have closed. Thanks to those who submitted.
