Question: What should I do to prepare for my first talk?

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

Soon I'll be delivering my first talk titled "Introduction to the modern content web". It'll be on building a very simple website with Gatsby and touch on some of the benefits and drawback to the JAM stack approach and a small demo. I'd like to know from those of you who have done talks before what you think I should focus on with regards to preparing the slides and demo.

Many thanks,

You should definitely practice in front of others and get feedback on where you can improve. If you don't have anyone to practice in front of maybe make a youtube video and try to get feedback that way.
