Lightning Talks

Looking for 10 to 15 people interested in presenting a lightning talk.
Topics can be what ever the presenter likes as long as it is related to software development and testing.
Presenters are welcome to do multiple talks, but they must be on different topics.
5 minutes is allocated for each talk.
If you wish to use slides they will be due 1 week ahead of time (we are going to use 1 PC to keep things running quickly).

If you are interested in presenting please contact Cheryl Klein.

Information on what a Lightning Talk is can be found here:

A bit old, but I thought this had some good tips for giving a lightning talk:

Doors will open @ 6p for networking.
Presentations will start at 6:30p.

    This was a great idea for a meeting, lots of interesting topics and different speakers. It's almost like a "mini-conference". Thanks to the organizers and everyone who braved the storm.

    For parking tonight, please feel free to park in the deck behind WebAssign. We are located on the 2nd floor of the building and our meeting room will be directly across from the entrance.

    Are there any spots left? I'd like to give a talk on Selenium (IDE OR WebDriver) or Sikuli or Robot Framework.

    • Cheryl K.

      Yes we have spots so I will add you to the lineup. Txs!

    Is it possible that we change the meeting time to working hours ?

    January 7, 2013

    • Cheryl K.

      Hui - is there a particular reason you would like business hours better?

      January 8, 2013

    • Dan K.

      I would also like to oppose the working hours idea. I wouldn't be able to make it.

      January 8, 2013

  • Cheryl K.

    Still plenty of spots available for folks to do a presentation. 5 minutes on your favorite QA topic.

    Prem, sent you an email, do you think you could arrange for the meeting to be held at Quintiles?

    January 2, 2013

    • Prem R.

      Greg - I'll let you know by Mon or Tues

      January 4, 2013

  • Josh Y.

    If Quintiles doesn't work out, we'd be glad to host over at WebAssign (Centennial Campus).
