Description is excited to host a lightning-fast hour at Open Source Bridge.

Been to a lightning talk before? Don’t miss out! Speakers have just five minutes to enlighten us with a burst of information about their open source passions and projects. This session is quick and edgy, yet informative—even intellectual.

Speaker line-up TBD upon session approval, but we promise to have a good mix of topics and a diverse set of speakers. See past lightning talk sessions from other conferences that we’ve organized to get a feel for the line-up and topics:
