⚡⚡⚡ Lightning Talks ⚡⚡⚡

Did you know lightning bugs use their flashes as a means to warn each other about threats, the P-38 Lightning was the most successful US fighter plane during WWII, and we used to have a women's soccer team called the Minnesota Lightning? Probably not!

Lightning talks are 5 minute, unscripted presentations, open to anyone who wants to present. No planning necessary! In the past we've had lightning talks on stock trading, vegan cooking, artistic Twitter bots, and -- just once -- JavaScript development.

Come with a slide deck, a link to a demo, or just an idea you feel like chatting about! But keep it short -- most lightning talks are under the 5 minute limit.

Lightning talks are often one of the most popular sessions at Minnebar, so show up early to get your seat!

Here's a picture of lightning striking a lightning research tower:
