Lightning talks are 5 minute talks. You have 5 minutes. 5 shall be the number, and the number shall be 5. 6 is too much.
More information about the logistics around submitting lightning talks will be made available closer to the conference.
We will be taking submissions for lightning talks by any conference attendee on any topic.
We will not accept sales talks or vendor pitches.
