Conference Updates

A few weeks ago, I presented at SQL Bits X. The slides from my co-presentation with Conor are available here:

Last week, I spoke at Microsoft Open World 2012 doing quite a lot of presentations. I have created a new and extended “Grade of the Steel” deck that I hope to blog more about my findings (these things tend to start as PowerPoint slides and evolve into blog entries).

If you want a copy of any of my presentations, please just mail me. Speaking of presentations, I have found this really cool tool that will compress slides: NXPowerLite. This neat tool has taken off around 60-80% of my slide sizes.

Lately, I have been practicing zen style presentations: max four sentences on each slide and heavy use of visualisations instead. I highly recommend putting yourself under such constraints. After I removed the text from my slides I feel much better improvising on stage.
