Ignite Denver 5 is over!

I hope everyone who was there in person, or watching the online stream had as much fun as I did. I think we’re finally starting to really hit our stride. We’re still working on forming a steering committee, but we did have a great start at video (below is one angle. The other camera footage is still be processed)

I’ve got the footage from Ben Wilkoff’s cam, so I’m working on that, Ethan is working on his angle. Ethan was also the man behind streaming, hats off to him!

IgniteDenver committee meeting tonight

Tonight a few of us are getting together to strategize Ignite Denver 5 if you’re interested in helping out, stop by Casselman’s around 6.

Right now we’re just getting the idea of the committee off the ground, so if you’re interested in helping in any way, drop by and say hello! Even if you just want to help during the event!

Make sure you RSVP, tickets are moving fast!

Ignite Denver – Tickets available now!

Time to RSVP!

That’s right! Tickets are now available for Ignite Denver 5 (AKA October 2009). Make sure you RSVP as soon as possible to secure your spot! Last time we sold out right before, I’m hoping we sell out even sooner!

The more people the better! Let’s make sure this Ignite Denver is more awesomer (yeah I said Awesomer) than before!

We’re not charging for Ignite Denver, in fact our goal is to NEVER charge for Ignite Denver tickets. But we are asking for donations, to help us get more/better raffle items, buy some rounds of drinks for everyone, etc. It’s completely optional, and voluntary, if you don’t wanna donate, don’t.

The reason we’re asking for donations, and not charging is simple, we think Ignite should be free. If people want to donate/help out, by all means, we greatly appreciate it, but if they don’t they should still get to enjoy the awesome presentations, great community and networking.

We’ve got an awesome local Denver band to play intermission, they played last time, and have some new material. Also the lighting and audio at Casselman’s is better, so The Compilers will be easier to hear and understand, don’t worry we paid attention last time!

We’re still accepting submissions for topics, so please, pretty please, spread the word, or submit your own topic, then spread the word  🙂 tell everyone to vote, and participate! There’s no reason we can’t get Ignite Denver to encompass more of our awesome city!

If you or your company would like to sponsor, just drop us an email.

So that’s it, the clock is running, stay tuned for more, lots, lots more! But make sure you RSVP!

Ignite Denver Call for topics!

Ocotober 14th isn’t that far away! If you think you’ve got what it takes to present at an Ignite, or wanna come back and do it again, submit a topic over at the Uservoice site!

The compilers are looking to come back too! If you want more awesome local talent music, that included twitter, make sure to vote 🙂

Also remember we’re looking for some help to form an Ignite Denver committee, sign up if you’re interested in helping out!

Ignite Denver 4 – Wrap up

Ignite Denver 4 was a ton of fun!!

I think Casselman’s was an awesome place to have Ignite. We’ve got room to grow, which is great, and the overall set up is just awesome.

It felt like the energy of the crowd was improved as well from previous Ignites Denver. The typical critics were there of course, what would it be with out them to cast bad juju? Overall though, the vibe was much better than before, I think that was great, and definitely a testament to the location, the presentations, and the crowd!

The presentations ran from the interesting to the funny to the “huh” which I think is cool. If nothing else, being different from “typical Ignite” presentations, isn’t a bad thing in moderation.

The compilers played an awesome intermission set.

We had some cool raffle stuff, which was fun! Jared gave some art, Chris gave some shot glasses and dog tags

The master deck is below for anyone that wants to watch.

Also for the first time in Ignite Denver history, we’re going to have video of the presentations thanks to Erik Boles of ChannelSnap TV. As soon as they’re available I’ll be posting them here, and submitting what I can to Ignite TV.

Thanks for everyone who came out to support us! It was a good time! See you next time!
