Lightning Talks

A lightning talk is a short presentation of your choosing, no longer
than five minutes. Unlike scheduled talks, there is no approval process;
speakers simply sign up during the conference. For a Lightning Talk, you
don't need to make slides, and if you do decide to make slides, you only
need to make three. Maybe you don't have much to say. Maybe you just
want to ask a question, or invite people to help you with your project,
or boast about something you did, or tell a short cautionary story.
These things are all interesting and worth talking about, but there
might not be enough to say about them to fill up thirty minutes. Maybe
you have a lot of things to say, and you're already going to give a long
talk on one of them, and you don't want to hog the spotlight. There's
nothing wrong with giving several Lightning Talks-they are only five

Your attendance and participation is very much appreciated!
