You get 5 minutes to show off what you've built (tool, hack, library, etc). We're language and technology agnostic, so it's all fair game. Then the audience gets 5 minutes to ask you questions about it.
While all technology is fair game, there are a few rules:
No deckware/varporware. It doesn't have to be completely finished or polished, but it does need to be something you've actually made.
No startup pitches. Ever.
No work projects . No presentations that are just promoting commercial software.
: 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.
