Hack and Tell is a set of technology/language-agnostic lightning talks, except that they're all about projects you've built. You present for 5 minutes and then answer questions for 5 minutes. Our first meetup in Madison went really well, so I'm really looking forward to this next one! :)
As far as projects, most anything you've made is good. The rules are: no start-up pitches, no work projects , no deckware. You can read about the projects from previous meetups on github: https://github.com/danluu/madison-hack-and-tell
We're going to do speaker sign-ups a little differently this time. Rather than making a comment on meet-up, just fill in this Google form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1VZGFnJi2QPWxON6RThFsECO4swfw0vtApwBIZ_7Ccs4/viewform
We'll send you an email letting you know that your talk sounds good. :)
: Let me clarify the "no job projects" rule. We want to promote the projects that people do in their spare time, for fun, or utility, and not the kinds of projects that are only applicable to people who work in your company, or your direct clients. On the other hand, there may be a project that you've built primarily at work, that solves a *general* problem that your company has allowed you to release with a libre license--this is usually fine.
