16:00-17:00, Thursday, 23rd May 2024
So, your talk got accepted at one of the big iOS conferences, and you’ve started working on your talk. You’ve got a great story line, and some amazing demos - but what about them slides?

Let’s face it - we all love lickable slides, but creating them is a TON of work, and only the likes of Apple can afford putting in the time and effort to create truly amazing slides.

Or can they?

Let me take you behind the scenes and show you how you can create amazing slides without hiring a graphic designer, an illustrator, and a professional photographer.

In this talk, I will show you how to

  • Go beyond the built-in animations to create animated sequences that will wow your audience
  • Easily animate objects on your slides without losing your mind
  • Highlight parts of your slides to direct your audience’s attention
  • Create slide decks that appear as if your watching somebody type out a text - super useful for all of us developers who want to showcase our work.
  • Create custom shapes that you can easily animate
  • Customise Keynote for ultimate productivity

After having experienced this talk, you will never create boring slides again.
