    Hey all, we updated the schedule for this one (see above). We're asking folks sign up for lightning talks only if it's really important to announce before our next one in January.
    Doors opening 15 minutes earlier so we can start the panel 15 minutes earlier to allow enough time for audience participation and comments.

      Where does one sign up for lightning talks? (At event or before event?)

    From now on, we have a hard stop time of 10pm at Geekdom so we're going to recommend Southside Spirit House at 575 Howard Street (between 1st and 2nd) if folks want to keep the meetup going past that.
