The NYC DevOps meetup is trying something new in February: Tiny Talks. Tiny talks are short, 5-10 minute talks usually presented by members. They can be basically any topic related to DevOps. The idea is to encourage local members to present at meetings.
From the website:
Tiny talks are 5-10 minute talks on any DevOps-related topic. We want to encourage everyone to submit a proposal. NYCDevOps is a community that shares. Tiny Talks don't have to be polished or fancy. These are short talks, making it easy for beginners and experienced people alike. We hope to have 3-4 presentations.
If you think you can't give a talk, here's a formula to start you off: (1) Use a title like: "In the last 6 months something I learned about X was Y". (2) Create 1-3 slides about what you learned. (3) The talk only has to be a few minutes long... Q&A will fill the rest of the time. For example, "In the last 6 months I learned that TerraForm breaks in [situation], here's why."
We'll have time for 2-3 Tiny Talks, so speaking slots will be first come first serve.
Hope to see you there!
Remember to RSVP!
