What is Ignite DFW?

A fun, fast-paced, evening event that celebrates the geeky, passionate, individuals of the Dallas/Fort Worth area with a random series of 5-minute talks (using auto-advancing slides).

Why speak at Ignite DFW?

Because aside from what you do, you have something to teach the community. Here is your opportunity to share your passion (geeky or otherwise) with people who want to learn from you.

Who runs Ignite DFW?

Run by a team of well-connected, albeit misfit, volunteers, Ignite DFW is made possible by incredible sponsors who make this community event possible. Help us support your community.

Our History

Ignite Talks is a national speaking series platform with the first Ignite event taking place in Seattle, WA (2006). Each event has followed the same format: 14 speakers. 5 minutes per speaker. 20 slides each. 15 seconds per slide. Auto-advancing. It’s up to the community to bring the variety and showcase their passionate personalities.

The Ignite speaker series was brought to DFW in 2015 and was established as a quarterly event to inspire community members to celebrate, talk about, and live their inner geeky passions. We aspire to provide a platform for all community members to teach the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area something that they are passionate about.
