So, for LinuxCon, I’ll be trying out remark.js instead. It’s not very different, but it gives access to more style and transition stuff directly in the markdown. And, best of all, since it’s just Markdown, I didn’t have to rewrite any of my content to use it – just use a different wrapper to display the rendered slides.
You can preview my slides HERE. You’ll see they’re nothing fancy, but they do the job. Mostly I use slides for two things – cue cards for myself, so I remember what to say, and a few clever images so that I can keep the attention of the audience for a minute or two before moving on to the next slide.
