For this workshop participants should come prepared with at least one 5 minute lightning talk on a topic in software testing. It could be anything from management to coding, IT to software, mobile to mainframe. Variety is the goal.
NOTE: In your RSVP, be sure you list what lightning talk(s) you'd like to give at the meeting. If we don't see one, we will reach out directly to help you come up with an idea. You will need one to participate - it doesn't need to be fancy. We just want everyone to participate in some small way.
Lightning Talk Format
For the lightning talk format, every participant has to come prepared with at least one 5 minute lightning talk focused on the theme of the workshop. If there's not formal theme planned, it can be on any topic in software testing.
Each presenter will have 5 minutes for each talk. You can use slides if you like, or you can demo something live, or you can just get up and talk. After each talk, we'll leave another five minutes for questions. Then we move on. Each speaker will get ten minutes total. With permission, talks will be recorded for podcast.
More information on the format can be found on the IWST website (http://indianapolisworkshops.com/).
