What is a Lightning Talk?

A Lightning Talk is a very short presentation, usually no more than 5 (sometimes 10) minutes.

It is informal. You may or may not have slides; it's up to you.

It may or may not be rehearsed. Some interesting ones are off the cuff. However, if you prepare and rehearse with a timer, it's a good bet that your talk will have more impact.

It is timed. You will get the bell if you go over 5 minutes, and you must end your talk then so the next person can take the stage.

It can be creative. Some of the best Lightning Talks tell a story, use pictures, convey passion for the subject.
