Ignite Denver 23


This weekend sparks will be flying at the Oriental Theater for Ignite Denver 23. Twelve speakers will take the stage to share their geeky passions and inspire the audience in an evening of five-minute presentations. Their sticker features the spark nodes and the bold red of the Ignite branding. It makes for a sweet laptop sticker to rep your Ignite pride. We've been sponsoring this event for a few years, and we are proud to be a silver sponsor for this wonderful community.

Since Ignite Talks are community run events, we wanted to give a huge shout out to the team organizing the night, the folks that took the time to craft a thoughtful spark, anyone who wanted to take the stage, and for sure all the people who have already bought a ticket to see the show live. It's a sold out show tonight, but we recommend streaming live to get inspired.

Tonight is Ignite Denver back for ID22. They've got their events stickers, just like last year when we sponsored Ignite Denver 21. The Oriental Theater plays host to an evening of Ignite Sparks, where there will be learning, heckling, drinking and eating (thanks Biker Jim’s cart!).
