After a year-long hiatus Ignite Seattle is returning to a bigger and better venue. We’ll feature 16 speakers doing great 5 minute talks and geek contest to kick off the night. Ignite Seattle 6 will take place on 4/29. Doors will open at 7PM and talk will start at 8:30PM. We are very grateful to be getting sponsorship from Google and Biznik.
After a long search Ignite will be at the King Cat Theatre in Downtown Seattle. It’s a great space that has a bar, 700+ theatre-style seats and a great stage. This venue will allow everyone to have a seat and should provide us a good home for some time.
As always we are searching for talks. As always each speaker gets just 20 slides that autoadvance every 15 seconds for a total of 5 minutes. We are looking for talks that geeks would love. This can be how-to’s, historical deepdives, a technical explanation, or just a great story. If you want to speak submit your talk by 4/16.
If you’re not familiar with Ignite you can check out some videos from the Ignite Show.
If you were thinking of going to the Techflash Live event that same night do not worry about a potential conflict. We’ve coordinated with them and you’ll have plenty of time to walk the two blocks between the events. Ben Huh, Chief Cheezburger of Pet Holdings will be speaking.
