Giving a bad presentation is still worthwhile
It means that you’re wanting to share something that you’re interested in and you are willing to be outside of your comfort zone. One of the things I like most about working on the web is that ideas are so freely shared, we should all try to contribute where we can.
It gives you a chance to work on valuable skills
I didn’t realise the presentation would be recorded but I’m glad it was. It seems that talking and sharing are important skills.
Keep them short
A bad and short presentation can be forgiven
A bad and long presentation is shit
A good and short presentation is great
A good and long presentation can be boring
- One slide per idea, don’t use a lot of text
- Break up slides with examples, something visual and a minimum of 3 jokes
- Large titles let you focus on speaking, rather than focusing on reading
- Practice by recording yourself
- Keep trying and improving
So, give a presentation and make some visualisations with d3.
