First, we’d like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who submitted a talk for Ignite San Diego #7. We received three times as many submissions as we have room for and many of them were top-notch! Our selection committee definitely had their work cut out for them. Congratulations to everyone who was selected. To those of you who were not selected, please, please, PLEASE do not be discouraged — submit again next time! Our selection committee is different every. single. time. Just because your talk didn’t resonate with these judges doesn’t mean it won’t connect with a future committee member!
Without further ado, in no particular order, since we never reveal the lineup until the night of the event, here are your Ignite San Diego #7 speakers!
