What, When & How
Lightning talks are a space to give a short (strictly less than 5 minutes) talk to the whole conference. They're often funny, slightly strange, or informative -- and they're a great way to give a first talk at a conference.
We will have lightning talks this year, during the closing session on Thursday.
Due to popular demand, there will be a second lightning talk session before the official conference closing event.
If you'd like to present a talk, contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org, or in #helpdesk during the conference. Give them your name and the topic you'd like to present on, and they'll add you to the list!
