Lightning Talks follow a simple format – every speaker gets 15 slides and 30 seconds per slide to talk about a subject of their choice. The slides advance automatically.
Lightning Talkers have a special place in the hearts of the BoS audience and many people have made the jump to more speaking gigs at BoS and other events.
These are the brave souls taking on this year’s lightning talk session at BoS USA 2016.
Ray Hightower is a software developer, founder of WisdomGroup, organizer of ChicagoRuby, and producer of WindyCityRails, WindyCityThings, & RubyCaribe. He is currently exploring parallelism and the Internet of Things.
Poornima Vijayashanker is a graduate of Duke University and the founding engineer at Mint.com where she helped build, launch, and scale the product until it was acquired by Intuit. Following the acquisition, Poornima went on to launch Femgineer, an education company for tech professionals and entrepreneurs who want to learn how to build software products and companies.
