A note for a technical presenter. 🧑💻👩💻
As shared before, I am a presenter for the Java academy for beginners.
I am happy that our JUG community is so active.
I am so proud to deliver a session on Java OOP, this time in Bulgarian 🇧🇬, my native tongue.
It felt strange to find words to translate a native English 🇺🇸 to my language, but also very satisfying.
One thing challenging for every person who wants to teach fundamentals is how low level or high level to go with.
Sometimes you can’t know the level of your audience in advance and you, as a presenter, need to take crucial decisions on how to structure the lecture.
Presenting on-line introduces another layer of complexity.
Delays, text size and switching between presenting and coding are some of them.
Nevertheless, the point is to improve based on the feedback of your students.
Do more live coding 💻 examples and ask questions, try to make it as interactive and fun as possible. I know it is Java language which is very complex if you need to go with every single detail, but make it fun and enjoy the process.
