I presented my first code camp talk this weekend and it was a great experience. Here are the talks I attended:

Day 1

Lunch

Aspect Oriented Programming in .NET, an Introduction with ASPECT.NET

Day 2

Followed by my session on WCF Advanced Topics…

I was amazed and dismayed at the number of presenters who did nothing but show slides. Here is some advice that I can offer newbie speakers

  1. Tell a story
  2. Use something besides just powerpoint (use the whiteboard, do some demos, etc)
