At the last Write the Docs meetup in San Francisco on March 29, we had 11 presenters give lightning talks. This post includes the recordings (audio + slides) of each presenter. There's also a compiled audio file in case you just want to listen to the audio. Lightning talks are a fun format that allows a lot of different members to present their own perspective and learning.
If you organize meetings for writing groups, I highly recommend trying out this lightning talk format. It’s a great change of pace, fun to see new faces, and generates a lively momentum and energy to the meeting.
