I've watched 50 plus presentations on programming topics, although most have been online; example, Google Tech Talks -- and have ad-hoc experience on what formats work for programmers, or practices to take into account when presenting to a group of programmers.

That said, I'm open to any suggestions, but here's some topic of the top of my head:

  • Programming Jokes, Images, etc.
  • Posting Code for download
  • Contact Info
  • Collecting feedback
  • Presenting Code on Screen

If it matters, in this case -- I'm giving a presentation on using a scripting language to extract, transform and load data to a local user group who's focus is the scripting language; Ruby in this case.

Questions, feedback, requests -- just comment, thanks!!
