I'm heading off to #FrOSCon , where I'll be giving my "Presenting for Geeks" workshop (in German) on Sunday. Anyone else coming? Entrance to FrOSCon is free this year, so come by and attend some talks!
In the meantime, here's an article about the proverbial short attention span of goldfish vs. that of humans and what it means for presentations. The article goes live on www.TheMobilePresenter.com on Sunday, but Patrons can read it now already :)
If you want to design great presentation slides - and most of us
do - you've likely gotten this advice: Simplify your slides. It's arguably
the most popular principle in slide design.
Pick up the DELETE machete, we are urged, and hack off all words we can,
until only the most essential ones survive. If only one word lives, super.
Best of all is no words at all - just a hi-res picture that speaks for a
thousand of them.
