As part of getting ready to come to CppCon 2014, please consider presenting a Lightning Talk. All attendees (as well as anyone nearby who is taking advantage of the free evening content without registering) are eligible to present a 5 or 15 minute session on Tuesday evening. While the first Call for Lightning Talks has more details on what we’re looking for, we’re open to talks from new speakers, from experienced speakers, from those who work mainly in another language and are visiting C++, from those who work in C++ all the time – everyone! If there’s one tool you just love using, one technique or best practice you’d like to share with others, or one thing you think is pretty darn funny, please see if you can make it into a 5 or 15 minute talk and share it Tuesday evening. There will be a projector and there will be an audience so why not “give it a go” and see what happens?
We’ll be selecting the 8 sessions on Monday, Day 1 of the conference. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you want to talk about, what length you need and a little bit about yourself – one sentence is fine. Your topic should be relevant to CppCon attendees but doesn’t need to be about C++ – we’d love to see “Why C++ developers should also know [language]” for example. Even if you don’t plan to submit, plan to attend, it’s sure to be fun!
