Update 4 June 2013: Links to speaker slides and videos have been added; scroll down.

Format: To accommodate the number of great talks that
we’ll see this year, we’re going to hold two parallel tracks in the
afternoon of each day. The more in-depth presentations will happen during
single-track sessions in the mornings.

Lightning Talks: By popular demand, we’re holding two
lightning talk sessions, one at the end of each day. Signup will happen
onsite, first come, first served. It’s a great way to share your idea,
project, or piece of work with the community in an efficient manner (each
person gets a maximum of 3 minutes, no exceptions).

Registration: The registration desk will open at 7:30am on
Saturday and at 8.30am on Sunday. Please stop by to pick up your badge,
t-shirt, etc.
