Documenting your Story - Crafting a good presentation


Whilst not a part of the core documentation of projects, presentations and delivering them to the public are an essential part of spreading the word about what you do.

They need to be as equally consistent with your messaging and style guides, get to a key point effectively and also allow the presenter to inject some personality.

This is especially hard with technical projects where the 'story' is either hard to explain or can't just end up sounding like a sales pitch.

In this presentation I will explore and explain my experiences as an advocate for several open source projects, audience reactions to those presentations and how I have iterated my presentations in sync with changes to product and branding.
