Subject Re: [APACHECON] Question about Lightning Talks

Note that we also have held incubator lighting talks in the incubator track
(not a single unified session in the ballroom) which are perfect for what
you are asking.

Historically these have been 3 sessions per hour, 15 minutes each, replete
with slide decks. Exactly what you are thinking of, but tuned to the
incubating, not top-level projects.
