Proposing Sessions

There are two kinds of proposals we’d love to see from each participant. The first is for lightening presentations (sometimes called Dork Shorts). The idea is for you to give a three-minute presentation on some project, research, tool, etc that you want everyone to know about. You’ll have access to a web browser and three minutes of our undivided attention. These presentations will happen during our opening session. To sign up, please leave a comment on this post.

Second, we’d like to know what you want to talk about, build, or experiment with at THATCamp. You can propose as many hour-and-a-half long sessions as we like, and we will vote on them during our opening session. To propose a session, please log in to the THATCamp website using the credentials that we e-mailed. (Having problems? E-mail moc.n1503249715ellum1503249715nlocn1503249715il@nl1503249715ocnil1503249715.) Click “Add a post” and write up your sessions proposal. There are more details here.
