Here's some guidance about putting together a lighting talk:

- Any language/technology goes (you're not limited to Python).

- We will be cutting each talk off at five or 10 minutes (depending on the number of submissions), so please time yourself beforehand.

- Do not have more than 10 slides. Presentations must be on Google Drive.

- Make sure all fonts are at least 24pt.

- Make sure the your name, title, and whatever contact info you want to share are on at least one slide.

- Leave out any unnecessary background info and focus on one small thing.
