Happy to say that today I have
presented at "TechEd on the road", a developer conference
5". It is one of the premier tech events, organized by Microsoft User
Group Hyderabad (MUGH) with audience
in both developer and IT Pro tracks.
As in most of my
sessions, I tried to use web based presentation instead of traditional power
point. I developed my presentation using HTML5, jQuery and leveraged the new features
of ECMAScript5, just to showcase a real time demo. The response of the audience and fellow
speakers was very cool and probably the presentation was worth the effort :)
Note that you need
ECMAScript5 supported browser to run the slide show. You will get a prompt if
your browser doesn’t support ES5. Run it in full screen and use 'right', 'left'
keyboard keys to navigate.
presentation, I have checked several existing solutions like S5, HTML5rocks
slides etc., but I wanted inline code snippets as demos . So wrote my own slide
show system and it came out well. Probably, I shall write another article on
how I have developed it.
Have thoughts of generalizing this web based slide show and releasing it on github/codeplex. Play with the
presentation and get back with your thoughts :)
Update: You can check about the proceedings and pictures of the event in my friend Phani's blog.
