This is the part where you get to claim your space in the universe (or at least at ETech).
Got an itch you need scratched? An idea burning a hole in your head? A cool hack? Give us a preview of it here!
All presentations will be in the Valley Room. We’ll provide the A/V hookup for your laptop, as well as whiteboards / markers / other standard things to facilitate communication (including coffee).
You bring the ideas, words, and energy. Metaphorical soapbox optional.

Proposed Sessions as of this moment
Anyone who attends can present or lead a conversation! If you are interested in presenting, you can sign up on the grid on site. If you don’t know if you will attend, you can still suggest session topics – the more ideas, the better! The standard session will be 50 minutes long, but feel free to suggest shorter topics as we can always consolidate discussions.
