Submissions closed, IP4 talks will be announced on October 20

Last night was the deadline to submit your talk ideas for Ignite Portland 4, and BOY did you guys come through. We received over 50 amazing talk ideas. They’re all super impressive. I continue to be amazed at the creativity, cleverness, and general awesomeness of people in Portland. You can peruse all of the talk ideas on the submissions page, and see for yourself.

I wish we could see ALL of the talk ideas at IP4. Maybe someone needs to propose a talk on how to build a time machine so we can fit all of them into one evening. πŸ™‚ Pending such a device, we have to narrow it down to about 14 talks.

The selection team has that difficult task, and is already reviewing the submissions. We’ll announce the Ignite Portland 4 lineup next week, on Monday October 20, right here on

HUGE thanks to everyone who submitted a talk idea for Ignite Portland 4! You’ll be hearing from us soon. Ignite Portland wouldn’t be possible at all without you. You rock! πŸ™‚
