So last night was the big night, the first ever Ignite event was held in Raleigh, NC called Ignite Raleigh. Myself along with Jeff Cohen, Kipp Bodnar, Ryan Boyles aka team OurHashTag organized the event but we had a lot of help from Zach Ward of DSI Comedy and volunteers. I was extremely nervous to give my talk but was very excited about the event as I have watch the success of other Ignites take place across the world such as New York, Portland and Boulder, CO. Speaking of Boulder I must thank Andrew Hyde who provided me with a lot advice on how to plan an Ignite event. Also thanks to Brady who started Ignite.
Below is the video and my slides from my Ignite Raleigh presentation on 19 reasons why the Triangle is better than Silicon Valley. Let me know what you think, as I’m sure some Silcon Valley residents are sure to respond or retaliate. :) A big thanks to @GinnySkal for recording and posting the video on 30THREADS.com. Other Ignite Raleigh presenter videos will be posted on http://igniteraleigh.com website.
