You’ve agreed to present a full day training event, and the day’s approaching. What do you do? I’m not a training expert, but I’ve learned a few lessons on the job over the past few years that I think will help. I’d done some technical presentations over the years, but in the 4+ years I’ve been at Microsoft I’ve been doing quite a bit more. I’ve presented at dozens of Web Camp events (both one and two day) all over the world, been in charge of the Web Camps Training Kit for the past few years, helped plan and present two But already you’re down from 8 hours to 4 hours, and that’s quite something. Now, for steps 4 – 7, here’s the idea. You are the expert. You’ve been asked to speak because you know something. You’re really quite smart, and experienced. Right? If not, well… oh, dear, we should have covered that earlier. You’ll really need to be somewhat experienced to do some training. If you’re not, and you can’t get out of this, hack like mad for a week or two to try to build some experience. Good luck! So, you’re experienced. What would you tell a friend who wanted to learn about this concept? Can you break it into four big things they should know? Either four main concepts, or a four step process? Great. From there, it’s just four one hour presentations. Here’s what I currently cover at Web Camps: Keynote Introduction to ASP.NET and Visual Studio 2013 Web Tooling
