Ignite DrupalCon: enlighten us, but make it quick!

Time slot: 
March 8th, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Day Stage

Ignite is a fast-paced, fun, presentation style that educates and entertains. This year Ignite is coming to DrupalCon Chicago! Eight presenters will be selected to offer their talks on the Day Stage on Tuesday, March 8, from 4:30-5:30pm.

Ignite talks give you the opportunity to share your fascinations and passions with the Drupal community. But, there's a catch: you are strictly limited to five minutes, and twenty slides, which advance automatically every 15 seconds. In no particular order, the presenters will be:

  • Hello, Drupal? Building Drupal sites that make and receive phone calls - Leo Burd MIT Center for Future Civic Media
  • A Shot In The Arm - Greg Dunlap of NodeOne
  • 0 to 1M+ in 24hrs: The Queensland Flood Response - Ryan Cross of CrossFunctional
  • The short history of the barcode - Scott Falconer of JAGTAG
  • Drupal Faster with Eclipse - Rich Yumul of Sage Tree Solutions
  • Using WYSIWYG Editors in a Microsoft Word World - Thomas MacLean of NorthPoint Solutions LLC.
  • Being the best at giving the worst talk ever - Kitt Hodsden
  • Driving the user experience of Drupal via Drupal Gardens - Jeff Noyes of Acquia
  • Low Footprint UI - Shai Ben-Yehuda of ArtwareSoft
