A Basic Lightning Talk Primer
A Lightning Talk (or, as we like to call it, “ Talk”) is a short (5-minute maximum) talk on just about any relevant topic. They range from serious and informative to whimsical and musical.
If you’ve ever thought about giving a talk at a conference, but you’re nervous or don’t think you “know enough” to give a full-length talk, consider a Talk. It’s an excellent way to get started as a conference presenter. Remember: there are many ways to contribute to the Django, Python and Open Source communities. One way is giving talks. This could be how you start!
If you proposed a talk for DjangoCon US 2018 and it wasn’t accepted, consider condensing some of the key points into a Talk.
Talks will be Monday-Wednesday at 12:50 pm in Salon A-E. Sign-ups will happen at the conference. We look forward to seeing you and your talks.
