You want to give a lightning talk at PGCon!

Yes, you do.  The fun, the glory, the laughter, the everlasting fame!  These can all be yours.

Be one of the "brave and true" who put together five minutes about PostgreSQL tools, experiences, forks, ideas, websites, or even (especially) jokes.    Anything from "hacking wal files" to "the PostgreSQL drinking game" is an acceptable topic for the lighting talks.

A short schedule:

	• Right Now: send your lightning talk idea to light at pgcon.org.    We'll need a title, speaker full name, speaker cell phone number, and brief (one sentence) description.
	• Send in your PDF slides only for the talk by 2pm on Thursday May 25
	• NOTE: Only PDFs are acceptable. All others will be rejected.
	• Thursday, May 25, 3:45 PM: meet Magnus Hagander and/or Greg Stark in the plenary presentation room for your order of speaking.
	• Thursday, May 25, 4:00PM to 4:45PM: you and the others deliver your talks

Fine print: 

* Lightning talks are strictly five (5) minutes in length, and speakers who run over will be cut off.
* PDF slides only, which will be presented on the conference laptop, so no demos, animations, private network access, or installed software.

When submitting, please keep our anti-harrassment policy in mind:  http://www.pgcon.org/2017/harassment.php
