Programme setup

  • FP-Syd currently operates as a working group, with a rotating roster of core members that are responsible for organising talks each month. These talks form the heart of the programme, and are around 15 minutes long, though this can be extended as needed.
  • If a rostered speaker cannot give a talk in their slot, then they are expected to swap with someone else or at least give a few weeks notice.
  • We also invite lightning talks of 5-15 minutes, and longer talks of up to an hour. These are scheduled on a month-to-month basis depending on availability, though speakers are always welcome to show up and give unrehearsed lighting talks on the night.
  • We're currently operating on a three-month roster. After each meeting, the speakers that presented that month are shifted to the end.
