Its that time again already. The annual Agile Yorkshire Lightning Talk Competition is fast approaching. It's an Xmas tradition to make the December 13th meeting a celebration of community speaking, with prizes to boot.

(event on Tuesday Dec 13th)

A ten minute Lightning Talk for Agile Yorkshire's December 13th 2016 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 past events:

  • The One Bad Thing about BDD

  • Finding a School - Code vs MumsNet

  • Sketchnoting Agile (one doodle at a time)

  • How cars work

  • 10 simple ways to help your team run like clockwork

  • How To Write Bad Code

  • How to Bridge the Dev-DBA chasm?

  • Resistance when Transitioning From Waterfall to Agile Scrum

  • ScrumBan vs Sprint

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