Thread: To all Postgres OSCON speakers

Folks,

Some of you are speaking at OSCON this year.  If you have not been in
Damian Conway's "Presentation Aikido" tutorial before, I strongly urge
you to take advantage of the free seminar being offered to OSCON
speakers.  No matter how experienced you are, it will improve your
presentation skills ... and we need as many great Postgres speakers as
we can get!

Is there a way to get a video of the talk?... would be great for those
who can't be there?... or even the slides... :)

I've been giving talks for some time in Venezuela, but i still feel like
i need an improvement in my talks... so having more tips would be great...

Only if I do one in the future.  Damian gets paid a *lot* for his
seminars, so there won't be any free public video.

I've give talks here in BsAs of Pgsql+Osol and 'Performance and statistisc
on Pgsql' and 'Perl + Pgsql' (and others), but is too many far for me now ! :)

You can access my presentations on www.emanuelcalvofranco.com.ar and
http://www.arpug.com.ar/trac/attachment/wiki/PgDayUnnoba/PDF_mpp.pdf
(it needs more improvement, at least more content).

I'm pretty sure I read his slides some years ago, so they must be
somewhere online.  It's simple matter of searching ...
