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

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