Lightning Talks @ Splat Space on Friday, February 25th!

It’s that time again… Get your Friday Night Geek on at Splat Space. This Friday, February 25th @ 7:30 pm.

What’s the occasion, you ask? We’re having our second ever series of Lightning Talks here at Splat Space. Lightning talks are 3-5 minute talks about anything you’re interested in, projects you’re working on, or things you think are just plain awesome. Technical and non-technical topics equally encouraged. We want to hear about what YOU think is awesome, so come out and share! Don’t like public speaking? Well, I can’t promise you a more welcoming crowd than what you’ll find here.

Last event was tons of fun, with a wide range of topics from Burning Man to to Android Development to Tips on How To Get Your Next Job. A plethora of awesome impromptu talks came out of the woodwork in the latter half of our event too, from Getting Started With Arduino to Hacking Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Our last event will be hard to beat, but we challenge you to come out on Friday night and test the waters. If you’d like to give a prepared talk with slides, we ask that you send in your proposed topic, along with your slides, before 11:59 pm on Thursday, February 24th. We’re not asking much advance notice, we just want you involved. If you miss the deadline, don’t worry. We’ll plan an extra half hour at the end of the event for Impromptu Talks, if being unprepared is more your thing. (We won’t hold it against you, we understand.)
The event is FREE, and it starts at 7:30 pm. The talks will begin at 8pm sharp. This event will be a “potluck style,” and attendees are encouraged (but not required) to bring a food item, and your beverage of choice (BYOB). There will be some food and refreshments provided as well.

See you here!

P.S. — You can do us a huge favor in helping us plan for the number of attendees by RSVP’ing at our event page at http://meetup.com/splatspace.
