About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Voting is now open for Ignite Bend 10 talks

Published on February 11, 2013

The proposals are in, 11 this time around, and now it's time to vote---which of those talks would you most like to see on stage on March 7?

Vote now for your top three!

Also, don't forget that you can also join us for the Battledecks voting party on Tuesday, February 12, at 6:30pm at the Broken Top Bottle Shop---not only will you get to vote for your top three picks but you can also enjoy a beer and get a taste of the Ignite Bend experience where folks get to ad-lib their way through "PowerPoint karaoke" and if you're feeling adventurous you can sign up to play along yourself!

(Want to know more about how we select the slate of talks? You'll find some thoughts from the committee here.)
