Ignite Portland 13 proposals

We are currently accepting proposals for IP13, to be held summer 2015. We don't have an exact date yet, so stay tuned for that detail.

Please note that Ignite is focused on sharing your burning ideas - the things that keep you up late at night. the stuff you'd do for free, even if it wasn't your job. Your obsession. It's *NOT* the place to be all self promotional or spammy. Talk ideas that seem too spammy will be rejected, in favor of those that show more passion, interestingness, and spark. So be sparky, not spammy!

If you had five minutes to talk to Portland 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, successes, failures? Fill out the form to submit your talk. We are looking for talks that will inspire and teach, not recruiting or product pitches.
