Not entirely sure what Two-factor In-Browser CSS Preprocessing (https://medium.com/cool-code-pal/e32792e56b53) is? Wondering if HTML9 Responsive Boilerstrap JS (http://html9responsiveboilerstrapjs.com/) is right for your project? Trying to get on the same level as horse_js (https://twitter.com/horse_js) and doge_js (https://twitter.com/doge_js)? Want to live your life like Snow Fall (http://games.usvsth3m.com/icefail/)?

Those were all jokes... but if you didn't get them, you should almost definitely come get sassy with us as we host lightning talks that center around everything and anything on/for the client. HTML/CSS preprocessors, javascript frameworks, typography, performance hacks, polyfills, flexbox, oh my!

CSS is actually a really powerful programming language (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2497146/is-css-turing-complete) and saying "javascript sucks" just make you sound irrelevant! It might be uncomfortable, but all developers should have some frontend knowledge up their sleeve... so take this as an opportunity to fill in those gaps!

If you are interested in submitting a lightning talk, please comment below with a title and a brief description. You should aim for around 5-10 minutes depending on how many proposals we get. Speakers will have access to a white board and a projector if needed. Beginners welcome, encouraged even, and topics can be anything related to client-side web development and design!

We'll be filming the lightning talks with a nice camera, so if you're interested in getting a decent video of yourself speaking, we'll happily oblige!

All attendees: Please read our code of conduct (http://flatironschool.com/code-of-conduct.html) :)
