The Meta Talk: A Talk On Talks

The Meta Talk: A Talk On Talks

A good technical talk definitely requires having a grasp on the subject in hand – but it's far more than that. It's about how you speak, verbally and physically. It's about your slides. And Motaquillah believes that the presentation (slides) are the medium in which we convey our message, so not giving it equal importance as your technical subject can ruin the whole experience.
This talk will mainly focus on how you can use storytelling and some other simple design principles to improve your presentations. There will be also some practical tips for heavy-code-related talks.
