edPUG - Edinburgh PHP User Group: Electrify your evening with Lightning Talks


18:30 - 19:00 - Sign in, networking, drinks and food!

19:00 - Close - Lighting Talks and chat

Welcome to 2020, not just a new year, but a new decade, and PHP's fourth decade. It's been quite a journey for the language!

To start off the year, Stephen, Ally and Nev will each do a lightning talk - one talk is about a problem encountered at work, the other about an interesting post on medium.com and the other about something rummaging about in Nev's head.

We'd love if a few others could do a simple lightning talk too, perhaps the thing you were most proud of last year, something you learned recently, or something you want to learn more about.

We are looking forwards to seeing you and wishing you a Happy New Year.

A lightning talk is just a short talk (no minimum length! Can be two minutes if you like!). It doesn't need to be polished, well rehearsed or fancy in any way. You can make it up on the spot if you like! Just to make sure we can get through everyone on the night, we will introduce a maximum talk length.

It can be about anything you like, here are some ideas but you are not limited to these at all! - A problem you recently solved at work, a library / framework or tool you've recently discovered, talks of interest at a conference you attended, something new you've just learned, a website you've recently launched, something that annoys you, something you love, a cool feature you've developed, a new solution to an old problem, something that's inspired you from another language or framework, something you want to learn more about or a blog post that's intrigued you.

Slides are not required at all, but you may wish to have one or more slides.

If you have slides, have them on the Internet (ideally Google Slides) as there will be a single laptop connected to the TV for you to give your talk.

We have no idea how many of you will do a talk, so expect anything, but remember, we are our own audience and want each other to succeed!

Following the lighting talks we'll have a brief chat about all the things we heard, then head to a local pub for further discussions.

Postcode Lottery are kindly sponsoring the event and are providing drinks and snacks.
