How to give great tech talks

Do you avoid giving presentations? Do you have strong opinions but feel like no one listens to them? 

I used to. That is, until I researched and practiced the art of speaking. In this talk, I'll share several things you can do to deal with the fear of giving presentations and improve your speaking skills. 

These tips will get your brilliant ideas heard, no matter how technical they may be. You will be more likely to change people's minds, get that big promotion and raise, and change the world... 

Or at the very least, you'll be less likely to bore your audience to death!

Shane Gryzko

By day, Shane Gryzko is a C++ developer for the financial software company ION Trading. By night, he blogs at ShaneG.ca, works on UX-related side projects, and travels like a maniac. Shane regularly participates in LSCC meetups, including giving a lightning talk entitled "My Name is Shane and I'm a Usabilityholic" in 2016. Since then, he's been actively improving his speaking skills and wants to show you how you can do the same.

Self-organisation: the natural solution

Driving change via a feedback mechanism is a common pattern of self organised systems. It's commonly found in nature: any living being is a complex adaptive system and uses the same principles to adapt to its environment. Complexity Theory and Systems Theory are emerging scientific frameworks which have incredible similarities with iterative methodologies. Join this session to see a different perspective on iterative methodologies and understand why they work!

Marco Consolaro

I was 9 when I learnt to code on a commodore 64, on 2001 I graduated in Computer Science at University of Venice and since a decade I relocated to London. I worked as Senior Developer for companies like Yoox, Asos, Itv, 7Digital and I founded Pantry Ace, award winning startup in foodtech. Software craftsman, entrepreneur, lean thinker, restless traveller, philosopher - all blended with Venetian humour!
