Speaking Tips for Developers

PHP Unconference Europe, February 2011
This was a shock as I had put the suggestion into the online system for the unconference some months earlier and it hadn’t got many votes. It didn’t get loads at the unconf either, but it just got enough to make it into the schedule and everyone immediately demanded it be scheduled first so they could get some tips for their own talks!! So yes, a not-very-slick talk about how to be slick when talking. And with no slides, since I hate them and wasn’t expecting to be giving this talk anyway – I did have a lot of people say they picked up some new tips and felt more confident about speaking after they saw the session so I’m really pleased about that!
