A collection of micro presentation we are calling lightning talks. The topic and content of each talk is driven by each presenters own interest and passion.

• Share a project you have been working on and find a collaborator.

• Teach someone something you have learned

• Learn from each and every talk


Our members and community that have interesting technologies they have begun mastering, a discipline or process they have been engaged in, research data results etc...bottom line you'll see members of the community sharing things they are passionate about.

How to participate and present:

All you need is a title or brief description about what you want to present and let us know what kind of AV hookups/adapters you need so we are sure to have something on hand.

If you are interested in being a presenter and would like to commit to a lightning talk please do so by contacting Matt McCabe directly (

If you'd like to just show up and present we encourage that as well but those presenters will follow the group of presenters that express interest in advance.
