    ESRI conference

    ntheWith the ESRI User Conference less then a moth away, I’ve started working on some presentations that I’m responsible for. If you have looked at the online agenda this year, you notice that the Technical Workshops are 75 minutes this year instead of 90 minutes.

    I like the change to 75 minutes as at times 90 minutes can get a little long… With 75 minutes for the session, I’m thinking of cutting out some of the overview slides and demos and try and get into the heart of the presentation. I’m also going to try and reduce the number of slides I use and show more demos when possible. If you think 75 minutes is too short for a topic, I recently heard of a conference that had 15 minute sessions.

    Rob,

    In the spirit of "The Conversation" going around, I'll chime in. More demo time at the sessions is good, but the slides play an important part especially if you can't make it to the session. The slides that get distributed on the CDs after the conference are a great resource. If the Power Points are now only 3-10 slides long and then say DEMO, then you miss out on a lot of technical information.

    My Suggestion: Have the content there for the CD that gets distributed to all the users, but if you cover it in the demo, skip those slides (place them at the end). This way you also have a fall back in case the demo goes awry.

    -Mark

    Good point. I will try and keep the slides there for the version of the presentation that goes on the CD after the conference.
