Lightning Talks

Anthony Eden (DNSimple)
Location: Ballroom II
Average rating: ****.
(4.57, 42 ratings)

Calling all RailsConf attendees: do you have something awesome to share with the Rails community? Can you tell us in 5 minutes what it is and why it’s awesome? If so then sign up for the RailsConf Lighting Talks. Lightning talks are a great way to drum up interest in your open source project, show off a killer new product or API that you’re launching, or share some wild and crazy thing that you’re doing with Ruby, Rails or anything else that would be of interest to the Rails community.

Sign up will be outside of the speaker lounge onsite at the venue. There will be a limited number of slots so get there early and put your name down.

Do I have to sign up somewhere online? or once at Baltimore?

Absolutely, but keep them short and sweet. Each talk is limited to 5 minutes and people love to see code, especially code in action, during your lightning talk, so 5 slides is likely the most you’ll need.
