My Android Summit keynote refers to many of my blog posts, and I want to provide links for people to read more. I could stuff all the links in the slide deck, but I decided to try something fun: Live tweet my own talk.
I used Quicktime to record my talk rehearsal, and watch the video with a pencil and note pad to jot down the minute marks that I am on a topic with a relevant blog post.
With the timings, I schedule the tweets to using Buffer so they go live as I speak.
Final touch for my #AndroidSummit2015 keynote: Scheduling tweets to be posted as I speak. Next: Pack! 💼— Chiu-Ki Chan (@chiuki) September 28, 2015
Ask people to follow
I put my twitter handle on every slide, and tell people to follow me so they can get the relevant links as I speak. People were really surprised to get notifications for my tweets while I was clearly still on stage busy speaking!
Sharing brings you expertise. Don't believe me? Explain ListView to a friend. You will know it way better afterwards. #AndroidSummit2015— Chiu-Ki Chan (@chiuki) September 30, 2015
Best perk about speaking at conferences? You get to meet other speakers and learn from them. #AndroidSummit2015— Chiu-Ki Chan (@chiuki) September 30, 2015
It is okay to say "I don't know". You are there to share your experience, not to be a walking encyclopedia. #AndroidSummit2015— Chiu-Ki Chan (@chiuki) September 30, 2015
