Border City Javascript & .NET Developers: Lightning Talks! 
Wednesday, March 27 @ 7PM Facebook | Meetup

It’s time to get back into the swing of things at the new Hackforge location! Let’s get to know each other a little bit and talk about some cool tech-related stuff. This event is open to the general public, and we enthusiastically invite the rest of our new community at The Accelerator to join us either in the audience or as a speaker.

A lightning talk is a 5 to 10-minute talk on a topic of your choice (most likely tech related, but not necessarily!). You can share knowledge, showcase a project, get feedback on new ideas or gush about something that excites you. Slides are optional.

You do not need to present a lightning talk to attend! All are welcome as an audience to listen and take in all the content.

If you haven’t done a talk before, lightning talks are a great way to get started and practice public speaking. If you’re old hat, a lightning talk is a great opportunity to try out that talk idea you haven’t fully fleshed out yet.

If you’d like to deliver a talk at Hackforge’s Lightning Talks at 7PM on Wednesday March 27, 2019 at The Accelerator (1501 Howard Ave, at Shepherd), sign up below.

You may sign up to deliver more than one short talk, but any additional talks after the first are subject to time constraints at the event.
