The mantra of Ignite talks are “Enlighten us, but make it quick”. Ignite is the name for a particular type of event that is held throughout the world (organized by volunteers) at which participants speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions according to a specific format. The presentations are meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject, whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented. The Ignite sessions will be hosted by Arun Gupta (Couchbase).
