CLOSING Monday 30th NOVEMBER

(event on Tuesday Dec 8th)

A ten minute Lightning Talk for Agile Yorkshire's December 8th 2015 meetup should:

  • Probably have a maximum of six slides (maybe none).

  • Be on a topic you already know quite well.

  • Be interesting to our audience but could be about pretty much anything.

  • Be possible to completely script (if that’s your style).

  • Not be a second more than ten minutes.

  • Win you a SIGNIFICANT prize on the night if you put your mind to it.

Here's some of the topics from the past couple of years:

  • Omnisharp, developing .NET code without Visual Studio

  • Finding a School - Code vs MumsNet

  • Build an Interpreter in 24 Hours!

  • How cars work

  • 10 simple ways to help your team run like clockwork

  • How To Write Bad Code

  • Agile and Knowledge Management: A match made in heaven, or hell on earth?

  • Success in business is short-sighted

  • ScrumBan vs Sprint

And don't forget there will be significant speaker prizes on the night.
