Lightning Talk: Book Club
Lewis (https://twitter.com/denhamparry) presented a lightning talk at Swansea Software Development Meetup (SSDM) about the new Cloud Native Wales (CNW) Book Club initiative.
The venue that SSDM have at TechHub, Swansea is fantastic. Its a 2 minute walk from the train station and a really comfortable area to watch and give talks.
The lightning talk was based on the Ignite format of 15 seconds per slide with a total of 20 slides.
Tips learned include:
- Make sure your speaker notes are in-sync with the slides (you will witness some awkward fumbling at the start).
- 15 seconds isn’t long enough to explain topics in detail.
- 15 seconds are perfect to get precise points across.
We filmed the event ourselves, which can be seen here:
Other talks included static site generators (Hugo getting a lot of love), analogies of what development is, why its financially exciting to be a developer at the moment (especially in Wales) and an introduction into BitCoin concepts.
