Tech talks

Tech talks are short presentations with community question and answer sessions. They are usually under an hour in length and focus on a specific technical topic.

For information on setting up a Tech talk, see Project:Calendar/How to schedule an event#Tech talks

We usually present tech talks using Google Hangouts On Air, which makes them available on YouTube. There is a concurrent IRC office hour for questions on IRC, so the talks also appear there.
