Meet up

First Time Speaker Workshop

Tuesday, 2nd May at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by The London Clojure Community in May 2017


First Time Speaker Workshop

A workshop to help you give a talk on a technical subject, with empasis on speaking at London Clojurian meetups or our Clojure Exchange conference in December.

You dont need to be an expert to present, as hearing what you and your team have done is at least as interesting as hearing from experts.

You dont need to be an expert speaker, just willing to give it a try (or just curious about what's involved). We are all developers with different experiences that are valuable to share and our audiences are very friendly.

The workshop will cover

• What is involved in speaking at a meetup or conference

• Writing good titles & abstracts

• CfP process and getting a talk accepted

• Preparing a talk

• Pro's & Cons of live demos - tips & tricks

  • Giving your talk - tips & tricks

  • Practice a short talk (completely optional, no one has to speak at this event)

If you have had any experiences of speaking or have any specific issues you want to cover then please let us know.

Make sure to check out Clojure eXchange!
