Drumbeat

  • Drumbeat festival was a big success! A more detailed report will be a lightning talk in next week's meeting. Have a look at the festival blog in the meantime to get a flavour of how the festival went: http://www.drumbeat.org/drumbeat_festival_2010

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
