To make this work I need volunteers. Your job is to pick a project, learn a bit about it, then present it to the rest of the group. Informal discussions are good, prepared presentations are better, and live demos are best. The goal is lively, informative, low-stress discussions rather than formal, extensively-research presentations. Spend an hour or two familiarizing yourself with your project (you do not need to be an expert on it), jot your notes into a couple of slides, then share with the group for 5 - 10 minutes.
