No this isn’t a hazing ritual for speakers–it’s Ignite, the latest presentation that is a worldwide phenomenon. Ignite is an innovative way to enlighten an audience on a particular topic. This fast-paced event began in 2006 in Seattle as the brain child of Brady Forrest, Technology Evangelist for O’Reilly Media and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, formerly of MAKE Magazine. Ignite is coming to WREF in just a few days. This year’s conference will feature more than 20 Ignite-style events throughout WREF. Here are a few Ignites you may want to check out:
You can see all the Ignites as well as all full conference details on the WREF 2012 site or by grabbing the WREF 2012 mobile app. We look forward to being enlightened Ignite style during the conference. Hope to see you there!
