Conference in the Cloud (A Perl and Raku Conference) 2020 - Lightning Talk Sign-Up
If accepted you will need to join a session on Zoom sometime before your session to make sure we can work out any technical issues related to getting your talk set up properly. Details to come later, but the plan is to try to get most speakers sorted the week before the conference.
With the extra technical hurdles, it would be best if you submit your talk early this year rather than wait until a few hours before showtime. A few spots may still be available at the end, but please try to submit early.
The Fun Stuff - Tell us about your talk
These are the details that will be shared with the world.
Make it catchy with a few words that capture the essence of the session.

Your slides do not need to currently be complete, but we need to know where to access them
The Helpful Stuff - These questions have no wrong answer
This format is designed to encourage new speakers as well as to give experienced speakers another chance to get a message out. Serious talks are just as welcome as a fun talk or a full on rant. These answers are to give some hints when it comes time to sort the speakers into order to speak and will not be made public.
This conference is in the cloud with people attending from at least 8 different time zones. There are lightning talks on Thursday at the beginning of the day while the other two sessions are at the end. So asking some questions here to help pick when you will get to speak.

The Important Stuff
Comments or Information you'd like the Organizers to know:
Are there any accessibility accommodations you need?
This includes presentation things like you will have sound from the laptop and personal things like you are in a wheelchair. The earlier you let us know the easier it will be to get what you need.
I agree to the Standards of Conduct
This is required for all presenters at TPC. Found at
I agree to be recorded
This question does not make as much sense as normal but leaving it in anyway. As we are in the cloud there is not much to stop someone from making a copy as they watch it.
I would prefer the talk not be included on YouTube after the conference. Naturally it has to be recorded for the live event. But it can be included on YouTube if it must.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
