12/13/17Database Seminar - LIGHTNING in December

UB North Campus, Davis Hall Room 113A 1 White Rd , Amherst, NY 14228 (map)

This meetup will be at 7PM on Wednesday, December, 13, in113A Davis Hall on the UB North Campus.

We can have LIGHTNING in December

Repeating what we did in April, this meetup is all about you, your ideas, and what you are passionate about. Come out and join us for what is sure to be both a fun and interesting night filled with a wide diversity of topics from people just like you.

A lightning talk is a short 5 minute talk, with or without slides, on a topic you are passionate about, it could even just be a new idea that you'd like to share. It doesn't have to be database related, though tie-ins are certainly encouraged.

Claim a speaker slot on the forum , or shoot an email to Charlie. (You can do either of these if you like, but I think it will work best if you add a comment to this post. That way, others will know who has signed up. ) We'll limit the slots to 15, so stake your claim early so you don't get left out. If your plans do change later be sure to let us know so we can free up your slot.

You don't have to declare your topic now. We'll also be shuffling the order of the slots, so the first person to sign up won't necessarily be the first to speak.

Want to get a better sense of Lightning Talks, here are the ones from Code Daze:

Davis Hall is on White Rd, not far from the Bookstore. The Jarvis B lot is just across the road. No parking permit is required after 3PM.

(Special note: We have created a google group,, for communicating about this meetup group and other things related to data. While we will continue to advertise on and and probably the bocc and buffalolab groups, I will eventually retire my infamous email lists. Please join the group.)

Sponsors for this season are EngineYard ( and Stark and Wayne ( We will continue our tradition of light refreshments at 7:00 with the presentation at 7:15. Please rsvp so we know how many are coming.
