Lightning Talks

IMPORTANT: The venue may only be accessed tonight via the Centro 4 entrance. Building works are currently taking place, meaning you can't access the venue via Centro 3 (which is the usual entrance for Forward). The receptionist at Centro 3 will be able to send you in the right direction, but Centro 4 is the way to go.

Apologies, but we are not able to supply the usual free pizza and beer this time. The start time is 30 minutes later than usual, to give you more time to eat. You're welcome to bring food to the venue, and you can also bring your own beer, wine or soft drinks (not spirits). We'll move the discussion into the pub after the talks.

Lightning talks

Each lightning talk lasts 5 minutes. The time limit will be strictly enforced, with a klaxon. If the speaker doesn't finish in the allotted time, they don't finish at all.

The schedule so far:

    We haven't been able to find a sponsor for refreshments tonight, so I'm afraid we can't supply beer or pizza this time around. I've put the start time back from the usual 6:30pm to 7pm, to give everyone a bit more time to grab a bit to eat before they arrive.

    We're at full capacity for this event. If you missed a spot, sign up for the waitlist. We usually see a few cancellations in the days running up to the event, so you're more or less guaranteed a spot if you're on the waitlist.
