I created a talk based on the mass conversion I had to do to take HTML
web reports and convert them to PDFs for our exteranal website.
This was *really* easy to do. I had watched some of the links I’m providing below
to see what I was supposed to create and it only took 30 min. of my lunch break
to create my outline of 20 slides. A presenter gets 15 seconds per slide.
If I can do this; anybody can.
Here are some examples for you to watch; and get an idea of what we need.
- O’Reilly Ignite examples page: http://igniteshow.com
How to buy a New Car: http://igniteshow.com/videos/how-buy-new-car-ignite-seattle-2007
Matthew McCullough’s Presentation Patterns example;helpful for an Ignite talk & for Presentations in general:
Tim Berglund’s example on “Heroism” in software development: http://www.augusttechgroup.com/tim/blog/2010/10/08/the-berserker-always-dies/
But there’s more. I’ve created an outline but I still need to create a slide deck.
For that I will need imagery.
Here are some links I got from Matthew for imagery that’s
either public domain or Creative Commons licensing that I can use.
http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/advanced?ei=UTF-8 (Select CC licensed images only)
[Click “Advanced Image Search” and “labeled for reuse”
They tell you to verify the image is OK to use though.
I did an initial search with this one and found images that may be copyrighted.]
We are short a few speakers; so if some of you could please sign-up we really need you to speak.
Here are some of the talks for May 11th:
- Oz DiGennaro – Semantic Rubrication
- Tim Berglund – Horton Composes a Method
- Scott Ryan – Jquery Mobile
- Greg Ostravich – How a cupsfilter made a hard web conversion easier
- Travis Nelson – R Data Analytics Software
- Jack Crews – !NOT_INVENTED_HERE_SYNDROME
- Kurt Harriger – Finding Clojure
- Matthew J. McCullough – Pwn Your Mac
So please sign up, it should be a lot of fun.
