Putting my talk all together is proving to be more challenging than I originally thought.
I'm full of doubts. Is what I'm saying worthwhile? Will anyone care? Gah, it's stupid really. I know I've had these doubts when I started writing blog posts, tweets, products, even 200WAD entries. I don't think these doubts ever go away when you start somethign new.
Tomorrow is Friday, the last working day of this week. I want to be able to go into work tomorrow and walk through this talk with a few trusted colleagues for their input. That will give me the weekend to collate these suggestions and make any modifications I want to make.
Then, I'll need to actually run through the talk and time how long it will take. It's supposed to be about 15 minutes, but I don't think I need to worry if it comes in under (or even slightly over).
In a strange way, I'm looking forward to it. I'm not sure if that's to get it out of the way or as a stepping stone for the next talk.
This talk will be more of a suggestive talk: think about what you're doing, are you doing it simply or is it over complex?
Maybe my next talk will be at Rubyside… and maybe it will be a bit more technical.
