Lightning Talks + Playing a Game


Year 2 is starting for DevStaff and with it, we're bringing some new ideas!

Lightning Talks

The first 45' will be devoted to a series of "Lightning Talks" ( These are very short (5 mins max) presentations on ANY topic. [Wikipedia:] "These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience, convey key information, and allow for several presenters to share their ideas in a brief period of time."

If you have anything you're excited about that you can speak about for <5 minutes, let us know (for simplicity, just write a comment with your idea). You only need a title. You DON'T need to prepare slides (but you can, if you want to). There are 9 session slots. First 4 are taken already. Remaining 5 are up for grabs, first come, first served.

Playing A Game about Refactoring

This part of our meetup will be devoted to playing a team game, where we will be developing a piece of software. You will NOT need a laptop. It's lots of fun!! (and you'll hopefully learn sth too!)
