In the past, we benefited (a little) when we had a Git Bootstrap talk, or a mojoPortal session. We've realized the weekend is short, and we have to move fast. We try to accommodate as many as possible and provide a variety of technologies at your disposal to create and complete a non-profits project. However, due to sponsor limitations, sometimes we are bound to certain technologies. Nevertheless, how do you feel about having "lightning talks".
A lightning talk is a short presentation, usually 5 to 10 minutes. How does this fit in at a GiveCamp?
When working in an Agile environment, and with a new team, some technologies might be new to you. A lightning talk could shine some light on technologies being used during the GiveCamp weekend.
What topics would you be interested to see a quick presentation on:
I think if we just stick with TFS within Visual studio, it will work for everyone much better.
I would like to thank you for your nicely written post, its informative and your writing style encouraged me to read it till end. Thanks

Lightning talks are designed to be short presentations between five and ten minutes long, but are usually capped at five minutes.Most conferences will allot a segment of roughly 30 to 90 minutes long to speakers. Talks are arranged one after the other during the sessions.
The talks are usually given at conferences in order for the event to have many speakers discuss a multitude of topics. The conferences are held in order for individuals to be able to share their ideas and concepts to people who have experience in the specific field. Lightning talks are brief which requires the speaker to make their point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. This causes the audience to be more attentive to the speaker and gain a broader array of knowledge from the presentations given.
A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or similar forum. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session, sometimes called a data blitz.
