Ignite Waterloo

Last week I attended Ignite Waterloo, a local chapter of the (in?)famous Ignite talk series. In a nutshell Ignite brings together an assortment of speakers who each get time to speak on whatever they are passionate about. The catch is that they get exactly five minutes for their talk; the slides automatically advance every 15 seconds regardless of whether or not they can keep up.

Not only was it an informative evening but it was also a very entertaining one as well. Here is a (small) sampling of talks that I found interesting from that night.

Mike Shanks: Combining Passions

Brydon Gilliss: Change The World

Christina Moulton: Why The iPad Won’t Fail

Sean Puckett: The Smart Camera

Jonathan Fritz: Intellectual Property and Bill C-32
