Episode 8: Lightning Talks

August 14, 2006

The Lightning Lottery Talks are a fixture at ApacheCon, with talks ranging from “What’s on Ken’s Belt?” to “Shared Ant”. There’s always a good mix of entertaining talks and technical talks, and the speaker pool includes seasoned public speakers and first-time speakers enjoying their opportunity for a moment at the mic.

Over the next few months, we’ll be running almost all of the lightning talks from ApacheCon Europe, and in this first one of the Lightning Episodes, you’ll hear Leo Simons, teaching us how to give a lightning talk, and Johan Stuyts talking about Shared Ant, a build environment for collaborate development.

The music in the intro and at the end is Colm McCarthaigh again, playing “Lakes of Pontchartrain.”

The recording is HERE, and is roughly 12 minutes long.

  1. ooo, can I put in a request for the “What’s on Ken’s belt?” talk to be done next? I’ve heard he has lots of cool stuff. 🙂

  2. We have that recording and it will certainly feature! Whether it will be the next one we release we’re not sure yet. Watch this space!
