Nod. This is the exact point that we should address. Not show off talks, 
but real meat which can help potential contributors join in. In whatever 
small way they can. An underlying focus should be to ensure that talks 
are not "look here, now here is this cool thingy which can be tweaked to 
do these super cool bling" but more on "here is this cool thingy and 
here's where all you can start contributing".

The answer(s) to the question "Well, I am at the FUDCon at foss.in, now 
what ?" when asked by any member of the audience should provide multiple 
paths to contribution
