If you'd like to give a lightning talk at a future event, please fill out this form ( If you'd like to speak but don't have a topic in mind, let us know and we can help you brainstorm. The talk doesn't have to be technical and the only requirement is that others should be able to learn something from it. The talks will be short (6-8 minutes + a couple of minutes for Q&A) so shouldn't require a lot of preparation.
