We are less than a month away from SugarCon, and are working to get plans for the first ever SugarUNCon is motion. We already are beginning to line up some of the experts here at SugarCRM to present, but we would love to see more of what our community is doing. To make this happen, we are planning to do lightning talk sessions.
For those not familar with the format, lightning talks are simply short talks, no more than 10 minutes in length, and are popular at most developer and technology conferences around the world. I think this format really suits first time speakers, as they don’t need to concentrate on putting together a slide deck and rehearsing a talk, but instead just show off what they have done. And it gives the audience to see a lot of different things in a short amount of time.
As members of the Sugar community, this will give you a chance to show off customizations and add-ons you’ve done with SugarCRM. Whether you tweaked the application to fit more into the workflow of a business, figured out how to that oh-so-difficult customization, or you built an add-on to an external product or service, we would love to see it. If you are interested in participating, please let us know in the comments, post to this forums thread, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know soon so we can plan out how long and when the lightning talks sessions will occur during the SugarUNCon.
