Ignite Portland 13 proposals

We are currently accepting proposals for IP13, to be held November 2, 2016 at OMSI.

If you had five minutes to talk to Portland what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? Talk about recent learnings, successes, failures? Fill out the form to submit your talk. We are looking for talks that will inspire and teach, not recruiting or product pitches.

• Wed Sept 21 - Deadline to turn in your talk submissions
• Wed Sept 28 - Ignite selects speakers & invites them to participate
• Monday Oct 3 - Selected speakers must confirm participation by this date or we will invite other proposal submissions to participate
