Presentations at the Tokyo iOS Meetup are given entirely by volunteers who take the time to prepare something to enrich our group.
Anyone—beginners, hobbyists, professional developers, businesses, or iPhone or iPad users—are welcome give a presentation about a topic related to Apple's iOS ecosystem.
The following are helpful guidelines to help you prepare:
Even though we are located in Tokyo, we are an international community. For that reason, the main language of presentation should be English.
Our presentations may have a variety of lengths, but 20-30 minutes is typical, with an additional 10-15 minutes of Q/A.
We have a projector with an older-style VGA adapter, as well as a connector which will make it work with an Apple Mini DisplayPort. The maximum resolution is 1024x768, so keep that in mind if you are preparing slides. The projector does not have a particularly bright lightbulb either, so you may want to give your slides a light background with dark text.
It is easiest if you bring your own computer to give a presentation. If this is not possible, please let us know.
We are discussion-oriented group. As a result, you do not have to give a lecture, exhaustively explain, or even be very familiar with your subject matter. Your presentation can and should have the goal of simply priming us for a longer discussion.
For technical presentations, building an interesting example or usage of a technology is often adequate. You do not, for example, need to give a complete overview of a framework. One concrete usage example may be enough.
All of your presentation content is your intellectual property and you are in control of how / whether you will distribute it. We would, however, greatly appreciate it if, for example, presentation slides were made available to group afterwards.
Also, please be aware that we video-record our meetup. The contents are made available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.c....
