Front-End Ignite / Meetup
The conference day and the after-party go by so fast. So, we wanted to set up some extra time for people to get to know each other and talk shop. We also thought it would be great for anyone interested to share something that they’re passionate about.
When and Where
So, we’re running an Ignite and meetup on Saturday after the conference from 11am – 3pm. It will be at Studio 620, which is a nice gallery near the hotel. (map) I have attended Pecha Kucha nights there before and it is a great space for open talk.
Per http://ignite.oreilly.com, Ignite is “a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd.” Well, we’re close. We’ll be doing it in the morning/early afternoon and it won’t just be hometown people.
20 Slides, 15 Seconds each for a 5-Minute Talk
Basically, it’s a rapid talk that is 5 minutes long and consists of 20 slides. The talk begins and you progress slides every 15 seconds to share your passion in 5 minutes. Ours will have a common theme: front-end design (surprise, surprise).
So, here’s what you do:
Find something related to Front-End Design that you love and want to share with everyone. Put together 20 slides that help you make your point, practice and do it on Saturday! Oh, and please RSVP if you are sure you are coming. It will help us gauge what we need that day.
I’m hoping that we find some future speakers!!!
(We will have a few different types of connections for laptops for the presentations or you can send it over to me and I will save them on my MBP. Any questions, email me at dan(at)frontenddesignconference.com)
