In his video "10 Things I Hate About Your Conference Talk," Senior Developer and Agile Coach Noel Rappin delivers the straight talk on how to grab (and hold) your audience's attention. He offers tips and suggestions that are useful for both developers and nontechnical presenters.
You can see Noel put his own skills to the test this spring. He'll be presenting at RailsConf in Portland, Oregon, April 29-May 2.
"XI to Eye" is a recurring video series produced by Table XI offering the straight talk on everything from development to business strategy. You can find more Table XI videos on our YouTube channel here.
