These Lightning Talks are on the Perl track, but are not necessarily about Perl, or even programming for that matter, though hopefully they are of some passing interest to people interested in Perl. They may be serious, funny, or both. They may be given by experienced speakers already giving full length talks or tutorials or by first time speakers just starting out (this is a great way to get started if you have something to say). The topic could even be "My language _ is great and Perl is awful", but a talk that bold should probably only be attempted by an experienced speaker.
We will have about 16 Lightning Talks of 5 minutes each. The first version of the schedule will come out on July 20, one week before the conference. If you submit your talk by the 20th you have a much higher chance of being accepted. At least two speaking spots will be held open until the day before the talks to give you a chance to see something at the conference and put together a Lightning Talk response. However if you wait for the second deadline note that there are fewer spots available and you are less likely to be accepted so please try to submit more than a week before the conference.
NOTE: You must be a registered attendee to in order to participate.
