Tips

If you intend to promote a product, app, service, or technology, be careful. It's important that your talk does not come across as a sales pitch. Consider giving a behind the scenes look at your work or take the audience on your journey that led to where you are now. Feature tours do not make good talks.

The best talks are focused on a personal experience. A great format for this is a three part story:

  1. What did you want and why?
  2. What different things did you try and why? How did that turn out for you?
  3. What did you learn? What surprised you? If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself before starting?
