Dork shorts, known in some corners as “lightening talks,” are brief (2-3 minute) presentations in which attendees discus current or upcoming projects, demonstrate new tools, or call for collaborators. Like most of THATCamp, Dork Shorts are meant to be as informal as possible. Although the concept might be unfamiliar to new THATCampers, veterans think it’s one of the most fun and useful parts of each meeting; Dork Shorts let you learn a lot in a little bit of time.
At THATCamp Vanderbilt, there will be no pre-appointed presenters for the Dork Shorts. You can sign up to give a Dork Short earlier in the day on Friday, once you arrive at THATCamp.
