We run several meetups and are always looking for speakers! Talks can be about anything from funding your startup, to the latest and greatest Javascript library, some crazy NoSQL database you’re in love with, designing for weird devices, typography, project management… you name it. We’re a friendly group, so if you’re new to public speaking, our meetups are a great way to work on those skills!

We only have a few things we ask of speakers:

  1. No sales pitches. We’re here to learn how to do stuff. We’re makers, designers and entrepreneurs and marketing makes us break out in a rash. If all you want to do is give us a pitch, please don’t. If you want to tell us how you built your company/product/thing, we’re all ears!
  2. Keep it to about an hour. I like to make sure we’re done by 8, and our discussions can get crazy, so I like presentations that run about an hour, which gives us plenty of time for questions. There’s nothing wrong with going shorter than an hour! We’ve had presentations that went half an hour and no one left disappointed.
  3. Keep it casual. Like we said, we’re laid back and informal.
  4. Encourage discussion. If you don’t encourage it, you’re going to be disappointed when we start one anyway. You might as well play along!

That’s pretty much it! We’ll provide the projector and power, you provide the knowledge!

Just fill in this handy dandy form and we’ll get back to you to work out the details. Thank you!
