Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are located at the bottom left corner of Space2.

The talks will also be featured on YouTube in the R0 broadcast.

Lightning Talks are as fast as lightning. Each speaker has five minutes to present and the clock starts ticking as the slides are presented. The speaker will have to finish their talk in a fast and precise manner. Failing to do so will result in being kicked out of the meeting room. If you are interested in signing up for one of our Lightning shows, fill out our sign-up sheet Lightning Talk Registration to enter a draw. We will announce the speaker for each day at 13:00. Registration will roll over to the next day, so the earlier you sign up, the higher is the chance of being drawn!


Job Fair

The Job Fair will be broadcasted in all rooms during 14:40–16:10 on Day 2.

Our Job Fair specifically targets Software Engineers (Python) positions. It allows our sponsors to promote their company and potential job openings on stage. Attendees can utilize the opportunity to communicate with sponsors, network, or even pass out their resume. We encourage you to speak to our sponsors if you are interested in working for their company.

There will also be a Job Board at the top corner of Space1 and Space2.

Wide Game
