Lightning Talk Signup 

On this Page:

Lightning Talks were very successful at the JA-Sig Unconference and so we are hosting them at the uCamp.  Lightning Talks are short 5 minutes or less talks with or without slides. You discuss a topic of interest to you that you want to share with the community. 

How do I give a "lightning talk"?

Mark Fowler's article has advice on effectively structuring lightning talks.

How quick should my Lightning Talk be?

Your lightning talk should last no more than five minutes. A five-minute lightning talk is totally fine. A two-minute lightning talk is totally fine. Your talk should take as long as it needs to take to make a point, and no longer.

Potential Ideas for Lightning Talks

This section is for lightning talks that people are interested in hearing, but for which we don't have a committed presenter yet. If you're planning to give a lightning talk, please move your topic into the "Planned Lightning Talks" section above.
