Hackaday Berlin: In Praise Of Lightning Talks

We’re in comprehensive-on prep mode for our to start with celebration in Europe in four a long time: Hackaday Berlin. And whilst we’ve acquired a great slate of speakers lined up, and to be declared soon, I’m individually most fired up for the lightning talks.

Why? Mainly because the lightning talks give you all, the attendees, the prospect to get up and let absolutely everyone know what you are up to. They’re longer than an elevator pitch, so you have time to at least begin to make clear the most appealing element or two, but they are not extended enough that you can include every element of a project. And that is the trick!

By being shorter ample that you could not probably protect anything, you do not need to fret about masking everything. Just go for the highlights. And mainly because you remaining a large amount of the exciting information back again, anyone in the viewers is heading to want to bend your ear about it for the relaxation of the meeting. It is like the ultimate icebreaker.

For the viewers? Lightning talks, when they are very good, are like a fountain of non-halt fantastic ideas and inspiration. And if you come about on that just does not tickle your hacker-bone, it’s likely more than in yet another five minutes, so no concerns.

We didn’t have time to operate a comprehensive-on contact for proposals for Berlin, but we’re hoping that you’ll journey the lightning. We’d all appreciate to listen to what you have got to say!
