Intern Showcase & Lightning Talks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will be featuring student research and lightning talks during this Keynote presentation. We have identified a number of students (from high school through PhD candidacy) and we will be highlighting their work.

We will also be featuring lightning talks. Lightning talks are a great way for speakers to present something of interest to the broader developer community in 5 minutes! All speakers are welcome to propose their topic for the DevConf lightning talk track.

Lightning talks will use the following guidelines to create a fun platform for participants:
  • There will be a lightning talk proposal white board in the lobby of the ballroom, so participants can give a short name (~50 characters) for the topic they are going to share.
  • Attendees can give their vote to the talk(s) they are interested in, with each voter having up to three votes.
  • At the end of the day on Friday, based on the available slots, the talks with the highest votes are selected and the speaker is informed they can present their talk.
