Your IDE as a presentation tool

André Staltz: I’ve just given my third programming talk where I use only my IDE (integrated development environment) for live coding and no other presentation tool. I noticed the audiences were very pleased with these talks, and I think it’s correlated to using an IDE and not a slides program. If you've ever watched one of André's talks, you know he gives good talks regardless of whether or not he's using an IDE. But he makes a good case for their use in general and goes in to great detail* on how to do it well. *even explaining each individual editor setting and why they were selected



Did you like anything in particular about a conference? Let's make a list 🎉

A great idea/initiative kicked off by Kitze: Did you like anything in particular about a conference? Did you hate anything? Let's make organizing conferences an easier task. As a conference co-organizer myself, I know first-hand that we're always looking to harvest good ideas (and avoid bad ones) from other conferences. Having a community-created list for this kind of knowledge will be super useful. But we need your help: The initial document is pretty one-sided, biased, and based on my own experience and perspective. It's probably missing tons of things. That's why it's on GitHub and it's not a Medium article. Please help me cover everything and make this document amazing 😍️
