I’m taking a little bit of a sabbatical from DemoCampToronto. Fortunately, my good friends Jay Goldman, Greg Wilson, Leila Boujnane and Joey deVilla are stepping in to make sure DemoCamp happens. Jay is taking the helm and doing the majority of the heavy lifiting for DemoCampToronto17 (tickets) is happening on Feb 25, 2008 at the Toronto Board of Trade.
DemoCamp is a participant-drivent event, started by the TorCamp group as an excuse to have more regular meetings where community members share what they’ve been working on, demo their products, meet others (and share a drink or 3).
- 5:00 – Doors open
- 6:00-7:00pm – Demos
- 7:30-8:00pm – Ignite Presentatinos
- 9:00 – It moves to the pub
Got something to demo? Thinking about how to Ignite the crowd?
The rules are pretty simple. Demos are 5 minutes. There is generally no Powerpoint for Demos, if there is to be Powerpoint it must be approved by the stewards. Ignite presentations are 5 minutes. They are 20 slides x 15 seconds/slide and the presenter does not have control over the slide advancement. All Ignite decks must be submitted to the stewards before the event.
Demos are not a product sales pitch. Read Value to the Audience; Tips for Presenting at DemoCamp and What Makes a Great Demo. We are looking for Toronto technology companies to celebrate and inspire the community.
If you had five minutes to talk to Toronto what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? Talk about recent learnings, sucesses, failures? Fill out the form below to submit your talk. We are looking for talks that will inspire and teach not recruiting or product pitches.
These events are community driven, you know you want to participate.
