2023/11/13 Talk timing, backup questions, tail shot for diversity

1. The standard time for the presentation is 40min + 10min Q&A + 10min room change.

You can do something with the first 50 minutes, like 35+15 or 45+5, depending on your content or presentation style, but please leave the last 10 minutes as a buffer time for movement and interaction.

2. If you will, we usually suggest that the speaker tell us a few questions that the room manager can ask at the end of the talk, in case the audience is still mumbling. With this trick in hand, the ice is broken after the first question and everything goes well.

3. We know that diversity is hard in a reality where the demographics are so skewed, BUT we can always provide a role model for new generations of developers. If you know someone from an underrepresented group who might be interested in presenting a lightning talk, please let them know that we value their experience!
