Gathering of Lightning, BCS Belfast & Farset Labs' highly & successful ad-hoc presentation series, is coming back. The format is the same as before:

  • Speakers have a maximum of 7 minutes to speak on the subject of their choice.
  • The Use of Non-Projected Visual Aids is heavily encouraged (but if you really need a power point, that's ok too)
  • On the night, presenters (planned or unplanned) are invited to put a 3-5 word synopsis of their topic on the blackboard
  • The Compère will decide what order in which presentations will be done, so be nice to him/her

Currently proposed (but not scheduled) topics include:

  • Garage Beer Brewing
  • The Media Community in Northern Ireland
  • BBC CPR - Micro Resuscitation
  • BCS Reborn
  • Circuit Bending Killed The Video Star
  • Alphabet soup: Professional certifications
  • And Others to be confirmed

Lightning talks are a great opportunity for people to get up and talk about something they are really passionate about without having to go to all the effort of writing stuff, organising masses of slides, practising and knowing what you are actually talking about; all that boring stuff.
