Too Many Presentations...

Since it's actually been really nice out this weekend, for the first time in several weeks, I had some halfway formed plans to, you know, go out and do something...

But that idea sort of fell appart when I realized that OSCON presentations are supposed to be in on the 26th (I'm not nearly brave enough to wait until the morning of the talk to write mine, unlike some people I know...), and I'd only barely begun work on mine. So instead of going out and having fun, I sat around and worked all weekend...

At the very least I'm making progress though. My APR talk is almost done (just need to write a few more examples), and my Subversion tutorial is showing signs of life. The only problem with that one is that I don't actually know how long a talk has to be in order to fill 3 hours (first person to say "3 hours long, of course" dies...), so I'm sort of playing it by ear. I've got a whole bunch of slides, and a lot of examples, some of which I've even written, so hopefully I'll be able to do a run-through later this week and find out if it actually has a chance of filling the time slot.

The Ruby talk's kinda sitting there waiting behind the Subversion one. I've got all the content for it lying around in various articles I've written, I just need to pull it together and get it into slide form. I'm pretty confident on that one though, I mean I've pulled together articles on the subject matter pretty quickly in the past, so I have no reason to believe I can't do the same for a conference presentation.

Anyway, the wonderful thing about deadlines is that this will all be over, one way or the other, by next week ;-)

  1. It's nice knowing I'm not the only one in this boat, though I only have one talk to prepare.
