My PASS Lightning Talk Preview Video


At this year’s PASS Summit, we’re adding a series of sessions called Lightning Talks.  In a normal one-hour time slot, you can sit and watch several presenters give rapid-fire, 5-minute micro-sessions on various topics.

My Lightning Talk is “Storage Area Networks Simplified” – I’m covering the two most important things you need to know about SANs in just five minutes.  Here’s a video of my rehearsal at home.  I’m playing with iMovie’s green screen effects, but I forgot to wear a shirt that didn’t have green in it, so it has some sparkly action in the video.  Ah, well, that’s what you get with a rehearsal.

My rehearsals ended up being a little over four minutes long, so I had to cut it even tighter.  In a live environment, people will be (hopefully) laughing at some slides, so I won’t be able to deliver it this quickly.  I just turned in my final deck, and I sliced out a couple of slides.

I’m excited to see how these turn out!  The Lightning Talks schedule is:

  • Tuesday 3PM-4:15PM – Room 201 (144)
  • Wednesday 1:30-2:45PM – Room 201 (144)
  • Thursday 1:00-2:15PM – Room 201 (144)

You can view which presenters are in each time slot at the PASS Lightning Talks page.
