I'm giving a 15 minute demonstration on ChatOps, so I'll walk through my process while I'm at it.
Fifteen minutes isn't a lot of time to demonstrate features, so I'll need to do a fairly quick overview.
There are a few main use-cases that I want to demonstrate along with an introduction and conclusion.
Whenever I want a task to go well, I build a tool that assists in the execution of this task.
For my presentations, that tool is normally a well-rehearsed slideshow.
Usually, either Google Drive or Microsoft PowerPoint is my go-to.
Using each slide as a single idea lends to presentational structure.
Well, I need to find out how many use cases I'll be focusing on, so I can start to actually build out the presentation.
Looking... (this is a process I do when I need to borrow an experts structure so my case has a stable base)
Okay, I found four target use-cases that I can make a strong case for:
These are the use-cases StackStorm has proven successful in promoting their solution with and I should be able to do the same.
4 (use-cases) + 2 (intro/conclusion) = 6 total slides
Doing that now...
Not bad, but I still need to go over my oral presentational strategy.
The basic idea is for each slide:
- introduce the overview
- discuss the body at a high level for ~ 3 minutes
- then transition to the next slide.
And that's how to make a 15 minutes demo presentation.
