The format of course stays the same: five minutes to show off your hack, and five minutes for the audience to applaud, cry, laugh, inquire, snore, chew, stand, sit, dance, grow, interact, etc. But, of course, we hope that the audience provides lots of great feedback and asks interesting questions (probably while sitting, though dancing audience members are certainly free to participate as well)!

Questions We Expect To Be Asked
What do you mean by "no job prospects"?
We want to promote the projects that people do for fun or for learning, not the kinds of projects that are only applicable to people who work in your company, or your direct clients. On the other hand, there may be a project you've built primarily at work, that solves a general problem that your company has allowed you to release with a libre license—this is usually fine. If in doubt, just ask, and we'd be happy to guide you.
Why no signup fee this time?
In the past, we've experimented with a small, optional RSVP fee (that we then donated to a worthy cause) to give all attendees a chance to attend, and better predict turnout. A recent Meetup.com product changes made the fee mandatory, so we are currently experimenting with removing the fee. If you'd like to keep the fee out of the picture, please help us by keeping your RSVP status up to date.
Do I need to RSVP if I sign up to present?
Yes! We sometimes need to use the RSVP's as a name list to comply with building security. If you are selected to present but do not have an RSVP, contact [masked] and we'll sort it out for you.
