Velocity Ignite

"Why is Pixar So F*king Good?"

Always wanted to try an Ignite session. Don’t know what that is? It’s a powerpoint presentation on any topic (usually held at a drinking party attached to a tech conference) with very formal rules — 20 slides that are set to auto-advance every 15 seconds. You don’t control it. Exactly 5 minutes. I decided to try one about a month ago, and looked around for a fun venue that was hosting an Ignite. Trust me: the O’Reilly Velocity conference is EXACTLY the right crowd for a performance that includes Star Wars, stochastic sampling and Pixar. Tuesday night. It was great.
