Ignite Seattle Live
Technology - Conference
Ignite was started in… If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers.
Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. Besides Seattle, there are thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, Boulder, Baltimore, NYC and lot more.
The first Ignite Seattle was a great success with 17 bridge-building teams, 25 speakers, and 250+ attendees. The second and third Ignites had ~350 attendees. Since moving to our new location at the King Cat Theater, our most recent Ignite had just north of 500 attendees.
