Geek Meet September 2008 – Django and Pecha Kucha

I hope you all have had a nice summer, and are up for another Geek Meet!

Presentations & talks

This time around we will try something a bit different. There will be one regular presentation, a rundown of Django by the lovely Emil Stenström, food and drink for everyone, and then a leap into the unknown. After the break we thought we'd try the concept of Pecha Kucha. Basically, it's about offering a lot of different people the opportunity to make short presentations about something they're interested in, and the length of each talk should be within 6 minutes (don't worry about the number of slides mentioned in the above-linked Wikipedia article, it's the total presentation time that is important). The idea is to have 10 short presentations, and the first one to express their interests to talk will get the available slots. So, if you want to talk about something, write a comment below and the topic you want to talk about (and God, please make sure to fill the slots now :-) ).

Update

Confirmed Pecha Kucha speakers so far are:

Location and sponsorship

As usual, next Geek Meet will take place at our kind sponsors Creuna September 25th 18.00, at Kungsholmsgatan 23 (a map to the location). Another sponsor is Adobe USA who has graciously supported us with a lot of goodies to raffle. If you're into ActionScript, I promise that there are some interesting things for you to win!

Sign up!
