Announcing Lightning Talk Speakers for ArabNet Beirut 2013
For the third year in a row, we are delighted to include a Lightning Talks session in our event program, where members of the community take the stage and share the wisdom and tricks that they've acquired during their career.
If you (still!) don't know what Lightning Talks are all about, they are independent, community organized, fast-paced 5-minute talks given by experienced developers, designers, and other creative members of the community about a specific case-study or personal experience that they have encountered in their career.
Set to take place on the 20th during the Design+Code Day (previously known as the Developer Day), the talks will revolve around the theme of "Making Web and Mobile a Better Place for all of us!" and will feature:
