Does anyone want to give a talk? This is your chance to get on stage!

This Thursday we're doing ⛈Lightning⛈ Talks! ☈☔ (!

What is a Lightning Talk?

A lightning talk...
• ... is a 5-minute talk on any topic (as long as its not a marketing pitch.)
• ... can be given by anyone, even someone totally new to Python! (Share your experiences learning Python!)
• ... often about something cool you just learnt or some open source software you wrote.
• ... but doesn't need slides and doesn't even need to be prepared!
• ... but doesn't even need to be about Python or about something technical (as long as its not a pitch)!
