Length: 30 minutes
I gave this talk at YAPC in St. Louis in 2002. It's about how to give a successful three-hour conference tutorial.
If you look around for advice on public speaking, you'll find that most of it says the same things: face the audience, speak clearly, don't put too much text on a slide. My talk is about tricks you won't hear elsewhere.
The talk is accompanied by detailed notes. You should not read the notes before the slides. You should read the notes concurrently with the slides, or afterwards.
Special offer: If you're going to be giving a technical presentation on programming or some other computer-related topic with which I'm familiar, I'll be glad to look at your slides beforehand and make suggestions. Send me email.
