We are hosting our first lightning talks meetup! Have a topic you've been itching to talk about? Been wanting to try your hand at public speaking? This is your invitation to share with everyone how smart you are and the cool tech you are working on!
Talks should last between 5-15 minutes with a few minutes for any questions or discussions after you completed your presentation. Presentations can be as informal or formal as you like. From slides, to just a couple of bullet points.
This is an inclusive event so be sure to be respectful of anyone who chooses to present. We will also be moderating to make sure everyone has a good time.
