Thanks to everyone who submitted proposals! We had a great crop of talks to choose from and had to make some hard decisions. If your talk wasn’t selected, you can always submit it again for Ignite Portland 13. We always need burning ideas and, with competition like this, your talk could be up there next time!
Like what you see? Please RSVP today! Admission is still first-come-first-served, with early entrance granted to folks who bring non-perishable food items for Oregon Food Bank, but the RSVPs really help us plan for attendence numbers.
Want to get recognition in front of our savvy Ignite audience? We’re still looking for a few great sponsors to help us keep Ignite Portland free and amazing. You can find all the details over on our sponsorship page.
For the others looking to help out, there is always room for more hands-on volunteers on the night of the event. If this sounds like your thing, head to our volunteer page and sign-up!
See you at Ignite!
