For those who don't know what a Lightning talk is, it's a very short
talk to get a short overview about a subject. They are great because if
you are not interested in the current subject you only have to listen for 5
minutes. I personally have found that I always learn something cool,
exciting or new!
The first section will be on "General Lightning talks", each person will
get 5 minutes (and 5 minutes only) to talk about anything from something
simple as "The new idea I want help with" to the "My summary of this 45
minute talk" or even "5 cool facts about Rusty Russell".
The second section will be on "In-depth Lightning Talks", each person
will get 7 minutes to talk about something a bit more indepth.
**Slots are still available**, so if you are interested in talking, please
