Lightning talks are short presentations one after another, without questions. At WikiConference North America 2021, we expected to have three lightning talk blocks, each 25 minutes or more, with each talk lasting up to five minutes. It's a fast way to learn about a topic, when done well.
Interested in participating? Please sign up below under your preferred time slot! When it's time for your block, join the session for lightning talks on Hopin.
