What we'll do
New Year's Resolution Series! **Not Necessarily R Specific**

From Wikipedia: A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or similar forum. Lightning talks can be about anything! The art and practice of crafting these talks is great because it forces you to work on:
- Choosing a topic that you care about enough to share
- Condensing your expertise into a short/digestable format
- Realizing that you DO have something interesting to say
- Not freaking out about whether other people will find it interesting
- Clear and effective presentation design
- (Eventually) Clear and effective verbal presentation skills

At this workshop we'll cover what a lightning talk is, and we'll work on developing them. You don't need to come with an idea in mind, we'll work on brainstorming topic ideas as part of the session.

What to bring
A laptop or plain old pen&paper
