Are there any requirements to do a 99-seconds talk? How can one sign-up?

I’ve done a few presentations on local and internal company meetups, and people always told me I talk to fast - might be handy for a 99-seconds talk! :sweat_smile:

But to be honest, talking fast, for me, is just a side effect of stage fright.

You can sign up live during the conference @mirza :grin: No requirements at all, you can talk about whatever you’d like (work appropriate language though of course :wink: )

Same! I’d timed a 99 second talk one year and managed to deliver it in under a minute :sweat_smile:

I think I will do my first one this year.

I think I’ll have been awake for more than 24 hours by this point, I’m considering penning a terrible 4-chord wonder song cover for mine.

I’m terrible on the guitar and I can’t sing at the best of times, but it’s got to be possible!

Will do too, but not sure what topic to choose :grin:
Maybe the pitch I did l this week about accelerate your learning in 7 min I cut it to 99sec :rofl: or other thing related to testers in rackets and my reflection vs. Blogging

Silly question - in hisorical Test Bash 99s talks I’ve seen people go up twice and do two talks. Are we limited to 1 talk each for TBH? :slight_smile: not that I am greedy… I mean I am… but…

I think it’s easier to do two in person, in saying that Ady did 2 at Home last year! Most folks do one
