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.

Show and Tell, for adults! Show us a project you've been working on, your favorite book, your wallet, your new haircut, an abstract idea you think we should all know about, a love letter, a scarf, a new gadget, or tell a great story from another creative community. Let us get inside the story, or see behind the process, introduce us to something new and amazing.

This will be our fifth month of Show and Tell - we have had some really amazing presenters in the first few months, and I am optimistic about the possibilities for this event in the future.

Show and Tell was proud to be featured in the Orlando Sentinel's Calendar last month:
