First, we’d like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who submitted a talk for Ignite San Diego #6. We received more than 60 incredible submissions, but we only have space for 18 speakers at each event. 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!
