Big ideas are welcome at the next Ignite Baltimore.
The 20th edition of the local lightning talk event is scheduled for Thursday, June 28, on the stage at MICA’s Falvey Hall.
For those with something to say, organizers are now accepting speaking proposals for the event.
While the organizers are pretty open to ideas for talks (just don’t bring a marketing pitch). The 16 speakers chosen each get five minutes and 20 slides to dazzle the crowd. So it requires thinking about what’s really important. For inspiration, past talks on the Ignite Baltimore homepage may help.
The window to get a talk submitted is equally time-sensitive. Proposals are being accepted through May 7, so don’t delay.
