Post Event Question - Advice to Presenters

A former member
Post #: 7
This is a post event question for members that went to the first meetup.

What advice would you give to presenters?
What should they talk about?
How should they target their slides?
What information should they have handy?

Also, please let me know if you were a Developer, Entrepreneur, or Presenter

Thanks,

Jim had a great comment in the format question:

"To presenters, make sure you target your presentation to the goal - getting a developer. A couple of the presentations seemed to be more of the typical pitch, and I was left wondering what type of developer you were actually looking for (any particular expertise and/or technology bias you may have), and what type of deal you'd be interested in doing (part-time dev for equity, full-time dev for pay & equity, full time for just equity)."

My thoughts on the slides:

Slide 1 - Title / contact info (required)

Slide 2 & 3 - Vision (ideally one slide is a screen shot / demo page)

Slide 4 - Current status of project & what you're looking for in a developer

Like Jim advised, I would recommend that presenters target their pitch to developers. What platforms, frameworks, languages, you want to develop for? What sort of help are you looking for? What are you offering?

This meetup can also be used to get technical advice. Presenters if you are unsure of any technical aspects of your project, I would encourage you to pose the question. You are presenting to a room with a lot of technical talent.
