Recap of Stanford Passion Talks 2015

This is our third year hosting Passion Talks, and through the service and time of many people, we’ve grown this conference quite a bit. This year we were able to fill three tracks of concurrent talks, totalling to 23 presentations. We had 130 pre-registered attendees not to mention even more who registered on-site. Last year, at Berkeley, we had about 86 in attendance. You can visit the official site here:
