The goal was to have a night where geeks could share their ideas. We gave the speakers just 5 minutes on stage with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.
I remember going to my first Ignite in early 2007. I went to three more that same year I think (Philly, Austin, Phoenix?). It is a great platform that usually results in very unexpected, creative, and fun presentations. I’m glad to see it getting some fresh juice.
