If you're working on a product, and are looking for a platform to demo it, please get involved. Add your details and the product name in the comments section below (first come, first serve).

When demoing, some the things we might want to learn are:

- Key design decisions you made

- Any learnings you achieved through the Customer Development process, any pivots you made

- Some of the tech used

- The overarching goal and long term vision for the product

Just as a caveat, the demos are not sales pitches. The aim is to share products and product knowledge with the community. So we're adopting a "lighting talk" format, where the aim is to communicate the main ideas and the tech behind a product in under 10 minutes.

If you can keep your demo as short as possible, that will allow for more time for feedback.

Let's have an awesome evening :)
