Ignite: Enlighten Us, But Make it Quick

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? We’re going to find out at Ignite, a fun evening of “speed presentations” given by people like you.

Happening Monday evening, October 10, this will be a high-energy, fast-paced event. If you can’t picture what it would be like, watch some videos at igniteshow.com or check out Scott Berkun’s session, How and Why to Give an Ignite Talk.

Please note: You must be at least 21 years of age or older attend Ignite. Government issued ID will be required at the door for age verification. Sorry, no exceptions.
