Ignite sessions provide a unique way to share ideas and experiences related to a common theme in a fun, animated forum. This fast-paced presentation style is a chance for speakers to really focus on their main message. Each Ignite talk features 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. There are no questions during the talks, but there will be time for discussion afterwards. This format forces the speakers to be prepared and really think about what they want to say about each slide, and to work on their timing. See examples of Ignite talks at http://igniteshow.com.
