Hot new web technologies and how to promote them – a presentation blueprint

Thursday, September 15th, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I am currently at the Mozilla all Hands in San Jose, California and decided to give a talk explaining a lot of open technologies to my colleagues so they can go out to conferences and get people excited about them. We have a lot of people and volunteers, and everybody should feel empowered to speak in public. A lot of times what is missing is a simple way to tell people about the things you want to cover.

To this end I put together not yet another slide deck on SlideShare, but a way to see a presentation and then pick and mix what you want to show yourself.

You can see and present the presentation here (use cursor keys to navigate the slides and press ‘N’ to show ):

The audio recording of the talk (raw, unedited) is available on

The slides and screencasts are available on GitHub and we are also keeping a repository of the explanations and screencasts on the Mozilla Wiki.

The idea is that when you want to do a quick show and tell of new technologies you can go to the slides, uncheck the ones you don’t want to have in your presentation, hit the “start presentation” button and go for it.
