"A lightning talk is a very short presentation given at a conference or similar forum. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers." - Wikipedia
Lightning talks are fun to watch and even more fun to give. Everyone is passionate about something, and this is a great way to share that passion. It takes very little commitment to present something, making it a great way to test the waters before giving larger presentations. Submit your talk via the Sign Up Form

List of Talks
- How to host your own dropbox/gcal/gcontacts!
- by Sebastian http://gnube.hcoop.net/wiki
"Using Owncloud and a Beaglebone Black you can create your own dropbox/google calendar/google contacts with as much space as you want! I'm creating a guide so anyone else can also do it. The basics are mostly there and I'd love some help!
The talk would be a brief description of the project, a demonstration of my personal owncloud (and the speed of transfer), and a call for help."
- LilyPond - Music Typesetting on Linux
- by Scott Miller (stmiller in #trilug") https://scottlinux.com
"LilyPond is a free (GPLv3) music engraving or typesetting app. LilyPond is somewhat similar to LaTeX but for music. This talk will give a quick overview as well as demonstration of working with LilyPond on Linux which I have used for professional purposes."
