LibrePlanet: Conference/2018/Lightning Talks
Watch LibrePlanet 2018 Lightning Talks
Facilitator: Donald Robertson
See https://libreplanet.org/2018/program for time and location info.
Lightning talks are five-minute presentations given by conference attendees on free software topics they're passionate about.
If you would like to give a talk, please add a title, short description and (optionally) your name to the list below. You'll also be able to sign up at the conference, or just walk up, if there is time remaining.
Please make sure your lightning talks are about free software-related issues and projects, and don't advocate proprietary software or Services as a Software Substitute (SaaSS). There are many conferences focused on "open source," but we're proud that people come to LibrePlanet to be part of the free software movement. In your presentations, please use the term "free software" rather than "open source" to help us keep LibrePlanet focused on computer user freedom as an ethical social movement. We appreciate it, and your audience will too.
You will be required to sign a speaker release before giving your talk, as the talks are going to be recorded.
To ensure a conference that's safe and fun for everyone, we take our Safe Space Policy very seriously. We'd appreciate it if you looked it over before planning your presentation.
You're welcome to bring a slide deck, as long as it works without requiring proprietary software. We recommend PDF or the .odp format readable by LibreOffice Impress. If you are using slides, please bring them to the lightning talk facilitator before you plan to talk, to save time during the presentations. The lightning talks won't be streamed. If you'd like to suggest a topic, but not necessarily give a talk, you're welcome to make a suggestion on the Discussion area for this page.
Our tips for an awesome lightning talk:
- Be as selective as possible with what you cover. (In our experience, a 5-minute talk cannot cover what a 15-minute talk covers and still be effective.)
- Use a large, reader-friendly font for all your slides.
- Keep your number of slides low and take care not to visually overload them.
