Tell us about the beautiful failure: Was there an event that no one attended? Did a liaison relationship go nowhere? Did an online tutorial crash and burn? Join us in a supportive and constructive environment as speakers share their great ideas gone wrong in a lightning talk format. You never know – you might be inspired!
