Please edit the table below with suggestions for meeting talk topics or if you would like to be a presenter. Many topics will require more than one 20 minute talk.

Feel free to add a more specific topic than what's listed.

For example, Robot Programming could have a talk on Behavior Based Programming in general, then another on Behavior Based Programming for Arduino, then one for FPGAs, etc.
