Update: Deadline passed. Check out the list of presentations .

Update: Deadline extended to Tuesday, May 19. We’ve got 6 presentations so far, let’s try to reach 10 by Tuesday!

We’re a bit short on presentations right now, so that means everyone is getting theirs in right at the deadline, of course. 🙂

Ignite is about having fun, meeting interesting people, sharing ideas and passions. If that sounds like your kind of event, we want you there. Why not submit a talk? 5 minutes is doable by anyone.

Now watch how Matt convinced people all around the world to dance with him, from Ignite Seattle:
