O’Reilly’s Ignite series comes to NYC for the first time this coming Tuesday, July 29. The format of Ignite NYC is sort of like Pecha Kucha on speed, with 16 speakers given 5 minutes each to run through 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. The talks at Ignite NYC cover topics ranging from new-wave knitting to start-up funding, and the entire evening is completely free and open to the public. And as a special treat, Ignite co-creator Bre Pettis is expected to lead the crowd in a “creative soldering contest.” Check the Ignite flickr pool to get a sense of what to expect. (O’Reilly asks that those who wish to attend to RSVP at Upcoming or Facebook so they can keep a track of numbers.)
