  • Give a Great Tech Talk

    by Josh Berkus and Ian Dees

    While a terrific presentation may take talent, making a good one is a
    matter of science and practice. As generations of Toastmasters have
    proved, anyone can do it. Veteran conference presenter Josh Berkus
    will go over his tech talk tips in detail in order to help you improve
    your presentation skills. Programmer and slide-slinger Ian Dees will
    take on the specific topics of showing code to an audience and
    composing your slides.

    • How to prepare for a talk
    • Nobody cares about your slides
    • ... but make good ones anyway
    • 7 terrible habits of ineffective presenters
    • Audience interaction 101
    • When your demo crashes
    • Curate your code examples
    • The audience outside the lecture hall

    Speakers who are giving talks later in the conference are especially
    encouraged to attend.

    At 10:00am to 11:45am, Tuesday 1st June

  • Practical Facebook stalking with Open Source tools

    by Paul Fenwick

    Want to find out what your friends were doing on the weekend? Curious which parties you aren't getting invited to? Wish you could contact that interesting person you met at a 3,000 person event, but you only got their first name? Want to know what your potential new employee really does in their spare time? Or do you just like data, and lots of it?

    In this talk we'll learn some simple tricks with open source tools that can help you access a wealth of information from the largest collection of social data ever created. We will also examine techniques and practices to help control what data you expose to the techniques presented.

    At 4:45pm to 5:30pm, Thursday 3rd June
