The slides from Carolyn’s talk at Beyond Tellerrand. The presentation is ostensibly about writing documentation, but I think it’s packed with good advice for writing in general.
If this is a typical result, I think Khoi should do more last-minute talk prep.
Slides from Harry’s deep dive into
Steven Pemberton’s presentation on the printing press, the internet, Moore’s Law, and exponential growth.
Here are the slides for the opening keynote I delivered at the New Adventures conference in Nottingham on Thursday. They make no sense out of context like this. You kinda had to be there (or suggest to some other conference that I should deliver this talk again—hint, hint).
This is something I do in my presentations. I have speaker notes scattered throughout the slide deck with the “beats” of the talk—10 minutes, 20 minutes, etc.
If I hit one of those slides and I’m ahead of schedule, I can go on a few more tangents. If I hit one of those slides and I’m behind schedule, I can cut to the chase. Either way, having those decision points spread throughout the talk really helps to keep things smooth.
One thing that can really help in the delivery is knowing if you’re running fast or slow before you crash into the end of your talk. That way you can make adjustments as you go along by glossing over smaller points to speed up or expanding more on your ideas to slow down.
The slides and video from a really great well-rounded talk by Aaron, filled with practical examples illustrating concepts like progressive enhancement and inclusive design.
There are some handy performance tips from Ben in this slide deck.
In this talk we’ll study how browsers determine which requests should be made, in what order, and what prevents the browser from rendering content quickly.
The slides and notes from a great presentation by Eric Bailey that takes a really thoughtful deep dive into media types, media queries, and inclusive design.
Here are the slides and links from the talk I just gave at the Delta V conference. I had ten minutes, but to be honest, just saying the name of the talk tells you everything.
The slides from a presentation by Drew on all the functionality that browsers give us for free when it comes to validating form inputs.
A great slide deck from Alla, all about design principles. From purpose to principles to patterns.
The slides from Yesenia’s talk on scenario-driven design.
Rachel describes her process of putting technical talks together:
This method of creating a talk is the one that I find gets me from blank page to finished slide deck most effectively.
She also acknowledges that many other processes are available.
If you are stuck, and your usual method isn’t working, don’t be afraid to try a different approach even if just to get the ideas moving and take you away from staring at the blank page! You might discover that some types of talk benefit from an alternate starting point. There really are no rules here, other than that you do end up with a talk before you need to walk out on that stage.
Excellent presentation slides on all things Indie Web.
There are some great service worker optimisation tips in these slides.
