Ignite Orlando

If you had five minutes to talk to Orlando on stage, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. Combine this with an onsite contest where contestants are grouped together to make things and you have Ignite Orlando.

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Orlando, Seattle, Portland, Paris, and NYC.

What is it?

BarCamp Orlando is an annual community-building event which aims to bring people from different backgrounds together for cooperative learning.

We hope to provide free t-shirts and lunch to all attendees, but can only do so with assistance from sponsors.

TEDxOrlandoSalon meets monthly on second Thursdays at Taste, a casual restaurant in the College Park neighborhood. A typical meeting draws between 15 and 50 smart, interesting, engaged people. Some will be regulars and some will be newcomers. Some choose to eat during the event, others choose not to. Two TEDTalk videos are shown, each followed by a discussion break. The event program is determined by vote, and discussions are open-ended.

TEDxOrlando is an annual one-day conference now in it's third year, to be held next in 2012. Please stay tuned for details.
