Lightning talks are a series of brief 3-5 minutes talks that focus on one specific example, idea, project, or technique. By keeping the talks short it allows neither the speaker nor the audience to be burdened by time, while sparking new ideas and generating discussions quickly! It’s a great and informal way to practice public speaking, attain new knowledge, as well as build relationships with coworkers and members of the community. Ultimately, it’s a fun way to share something that you are passionate about.
