A few days back, I announced the creation of the a2
The general meeting flow that we’re going to start off with is:
- A presentation/demo of something awesome (for about an hour with questions interspersed plus maybe a few extra minutes for questions afterward)
- 5 minute lightning talks (proposed beforehand using the form below)
- General discussion (either collectively or in groups. Individuals having discussions with themselves is not encouraged.)
This is a rough outline, and I expect a lot of flexing based on the topics du jour.
I’m asking for RSVPs because I’d like to encourage folks to give lightning talks and the form gives a space devoted to that. Lightning talks, for those unfamiliar with the term, are simply 5 minute or shorter talks to introduce people to a topic or to give a quick demo of something new and useful. They can also be a good way to spur new discussion. RSVPs are also good to ensure that a really hot topic doesn’t overwhelm the space we have.
There aren’t any lightning talks lined up yet, so be sure to toss your name into the hat if you want to give one.Â Also, there’s a form online if you want to give a talk at a2div and another if you have a topic you’d like to hear about.
