The Ignite Talks format:

5

Minutes

Every Ignite talk lasts 5 minutes. No more, no less. Speakers talk about anything they are passionate about, get to the point, and get there quick.

20

Slides

Most humans are visual learners, so slides with interesting imagery are a key element of why Ignite talks are so engaging.

15

Seconds

Slides auto-advance every 15 seconds, so speakers must be clear and concise with their words. Every word counts.
