The “Lightning Lottery Talks” are always a popular part of ApacheCon. This year, I managed to sneak my microphone up onto the podium, and get a pretty good recording of most of them. Except for Geir, who insisted on not standing at the podium. 🙁 (Presumably because I didn’t actually tell anyone I was recording.)
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be running some of the lightning talks, so you can get a feel for what they’re like. Most of them don’t quite work if you’re not there, but you’ll get some of the flavor of it.
