For the September 12th meeting I’d like have a series of lightning talks.
A lightning talk is “is a short presentation given at a conference or similar forum. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_Talk)
Lightning talks are open to anyone. Lightning talks typically run 10-15 minutes. You can talk about pretty much whatever you want (try to keep it cloud related). This is a great way to get into user group speaking, without having to prepare for a 60-75 minute talk.
If you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what your lightning talk topic is.
