Ignite Velocity

Event
Location: Salons E-F

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Would you pitch a project? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? This high-energy, fast-paced event will feature up to 16 Ignite presentations.

With Velocity approaching fast, we’re doing a special Ignite! on Monday, June 23rd at 8:45 pm. This event is free and will be open to all. There will be a cash bar.

There will be a total of 16 talks. Each Ignite! talk is 5 minutes long with 20 slides and only 15 seconds a slide. There are still many slots open, and we want to hear your cool ideas, hacks, lessons, and especially WebOps “war stories”.

The Submission Deadline is June 9th, and we will be accepting and announcing good talks as they come in. We will post the final lineup on June 13th. If you’ve never been to an Ignite event before, here’s a great example from Ignite SF last month posted on the O’Reilly Radar by Jesse Robbins. Submit your talk here
