We try to do roughly half and half between intro and the more advanced 
talks - half to get the newer folks to join us, and half to encourage 
them on their path towards contributing to the projects themselves.

All talks will be roughly 50 minutes (45 + Q&A time).

The kind of talks that you mention are all appropriate for the audience 
we tend to attract, but as a reviewer I'd probably personally lean 
towards the more advanced end of the spectrum than the bare-bones intro
