Technical Segment - This is a short segment to describe to people HOW to do something. In length, this segment shall never be longer than 30 minutes. Ideally the segment is 15 minutes in length, however the topic may require more time. For each technical segment there must be a write-up in the wiki. If you do not have access to the Wiki, please send your technical segment write-up to at least 12 hours before the show.

This write up should be a text document which contains the following elements:
