      Oh, sorry, should have been clearer, use the left and right arrow keys to go between slides. I built the slides using bespoke.js. Which was built by a colleague, so I forget that not everyone is used to it.

    • Vernon

      Thank you. I thought clicking would work. Maybe bespoke.js should allow both left/right arrows and click/tap... Thanks for a great presentation and handy slides :)

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks for some of the feedback on my talk, it was great to see everyone :)

    If you have any questions, ping me on twitter or here and I'll try my best to answer.

    If you want to have a look at the demo site I made, you can see it here:

    The PayPal sandbox is active so if you have a developer/sandbox PayPal account, go right ahead and have a play with the checkout process if you want!

    For those that are interested in having a look at Premise, I forgot to mention that the Copyblogger team are having a 'sale' and Premise is $95 instead of it's normal price of $165

    See you next time
