Welcome to the “Ignite the Night” website! Ignite the Night will take place during the AEA Conference in Anaheim, CA on November 3, 2011. The time has been set for 7:15 and the venue is the Avalon A.
So what is Ignite? According to ignite.oreilly.com, Ingite is:
“Fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global—Ignite is all of these and more. It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd. Run by local volunteers who are connected through the global Ignite network, Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city. And, via streaming and archived videos of local talks, local Ignites share all that knowledge and passion with the world.”
Each 5-minute talk consists of 20 slides which switch every 15 seconds. Presentations are clearly planned out and fun to listen to.
