Ignite Portland is a fun, fast-paced, evening of presentations where speakers gather to share their knowledge and passion. Each speaker gets exactly five minutes to teach, enlighten, or inspire the crowd, all backed up by 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds.
Talks cover a wide range of (often geeky) topics, from roller skating to nuclear reactors. You can find videos from past Ignite Portland events in our video archive.

*We invited Stephen to submit via our proposal page but a late flight out the Bay Area foiled his plans on deadline day. Stephen submitted his talk to your humble speaker wrangler later that day, and the selection committee included it in the discussions.
Thank you to everyone who submitted talk proposals!
