I gave my first Ignite talk last week at DemoCamp. If you’re unfamiliar with the format, you have 20 slides which advance automatically every 15 seconds, giving you a total of 5 minutes to talk. It’s a fun format, but I was amazed at how much more quickly those slides flashed by when I was in front of an audience than when I was practicing.
My slides were mostly photos, and I had notes co-ordinated with them. I’ve put the presentation on Slideshare, but they don’t share presentation notes well, so I’ll include them here. The bullets are numbered the same as the corresponding slides. Read them really fast and you’ll get an accurate impression of how my talk went (at least until the video gets posted, ruh roh). Slides and notes below the jump.
