You've been there, at a code camp or conference and you know more about a topic than the speaker. You want to get up and show your stuff but how do you make that happen? Delivering presentations at code camps and conferences requires some thinking, planning and execution to make it happen, and making it a success requires some skill. Fortunately these can be learned. In this talk we will look at what is involved in taking your act to the main stage, from the selection of a topic to finding out who to talk to. We’ll cover the logistics of responding to calls for content, where to get the speaking skills, and the tricks for how to successfully deliver a technical demo. We will show you what you need to know to add professional speaker to your resume and have some fun along the way.
