If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? Would you talk about your latest passion? Describe the trip of a lifetime? Teach a hack? We’ll find out at in this high-energy, fast-paced technology show-and-tell. Any topic is fair game as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to science fiction. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance after 15 seconds—that’s the fun of Ignite!

There will be food and beverages throughout the event, with networking and mingling happening for the first half hour. Presentations will start promptly at 7:00 pm.

Ignite presenters receive a Bronze pass to Software Architecture, which includes access to conference keynotes, sessions, and all conference-related networking events.

The call for proposals (CFP) is closed.
