Re: [NYC-rb] Talks on Tuesday: Format?

Hi Michael,

The format is we usually have one talk announced in advance, which
might be up to 40 mins long. For this month we just confirmed Mat
Brown will be giving the talk he proposed on the mailing list:
"ElasticSearch: The Future of Fulltext".

Before that talk though, we always reserve time for lightning talks
and announcements (which are not scheduled in advance)... Those can be
up to 5 minutes long, and some people do plug in their laptops for
lightning talks with slides/demos.

Pivotal has a projector available which we use -- don't remember the
resolution off-hand, unfortunately, but we don't usually have any

Let me know if you have any questions,
