Ignite Portland 6 proposals

We are not accepting proposals at this time.

Visit Ignite Portland for more information about the event.

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? We are looking for talks that will inspire and teach, not recruiting or product pitches.
