Lightning Talks

Lightning talks are short presentations given by different people. Slides are discouraged and the time limit is rigidly enforced - you will be cut off when time is called.

Depending on the number of people interested in presenting, the lightning talks will last anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. If you have a preference on the length, list that in the table below.


The lightning talks will be from 16:00 to 16:50 in BarCamp A. If you have slides, you need to get them to tflink by 15:30 or you will not be able to use them. We won't be switching laptops around during the 50 minutes and you'll need to talk to tflink if you need something for a demo.
