Hack and Tell 2

Hack and Tell is a set of technology/language-agnostic lightning talks, except that they're all about projects you've built. You present for 5 minutes and then answer questions for 5 minutes. Our first meetup in Madison went really well, so I'm really looking forward to this next one! :)

As far as projects, most anything  you've made is good. The rules are: no start-up pitches, no work projects [0], no deckware. You can read about the projects from previous meetups on github:

We're going to do speaker sign-ups a little differently this time. Rather than making a comment on meet-up, just fill in this Google form:

We'll send you an email letting you know that your talk sounds good. :)

[0]: Let me clarify the "no job projects" rule. We want to promote the projects that people do in their spare time, for fun, or utility, and 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 that 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.

    Very interesting and informative. People had really cool projects and they all did great presentations.

    Hi all!

    The first meetup was a ton of fun, and I'm excited to see so many of you already RSVP'd for the second one.

    However, our ratio of speakers to audience is significantly lower this time. In fact, we have yet to receive any volunteers to speak.

    If you have a project you've finished or one you're working on, please come tell us about it! If you know someone who's making something you think is neat, please tell them how cool it is and encourage them to present! :)

      I would speak, but unfortunately just realized that this is the same night as the bus trip to Startup MKE :/

    Just wanted to let you all know that we've secured speakers for next week. :) Thanks!

    We could stretch to one or two more slots if you're in a hurry to present. ;)

    Looking forward to seeing you all next week,

    If the second Hack and Tell is as good as the first, I will be able to confidently say this is the best meetup in Madison. Looking forward to seeing all of the cool stuff people are working on.
