Hi!
Thanks for choosing to speak at a KernelTLV session. We’d like to share with you a few
guidelines we use to produce high-quality meetups and talks.
If you have any questions, please talk to Kfir Gollan, Gil Yankovitch or Ido Ben-Yair on
Facebook or send a private message to our Facebook page.
Before the meetup
● Write a paragraph that describes your talk. We’ll use it to generate interest.
● Feel free to include a bullet list of the topics your talk will cover.
● Prepare a short bio for yourself. Feel free to list credentials such as positions you’ve
held (or still hold), relevant degrees you’ve earned, even cool side-projects and
hobbies. People want to know who you are.
● The texts should be in English.
● Send us a copy of your slide deck for review. It doesn’t have to be the final version.
We want to make sure we’re giving engaging and relevant talks.
● English works best for technical talks, but you don’t have to give the talk in English.
● Most speakers write the slide deck in English but speak Hebrew.
The slide deck
● Try to go over what you’re planning to talk about at the beginning and list the main
takeaways at the end.
● Tell a ​story​.
● Try not to read out of your slide deck. Use it as a guide. Support the points you are
trying to make with charts, images and code snippets. It shouldn’t read like an article.
● Lots of code looks tiny and unreadable on the big screen. Show only the most
important parts.
● The ideal talk contains enough detail to be engaging but not so much that it becomes
exhausting. It’s not a lecture.
● Speaker notes help.
During the talk
● Speak loudly, clearly and slowly.
● Look at the audience, but don’t stare at a specific person.
● Everyone gets nervous when giving a talk.
● Please leave time for questions at the end.
● People usually approach you with questions after the talk.
● Try to have fun!
After the meetup
● Please share the slide deck with us. We like to publish the decks on SlideShare.
● Sometimes we record a video of the event to publish on our YouTube channel. If you
don’t want us to shoot the video, let us know.
● Links to events, decks and videos are published on our Facebook page, Facebook
group, meetup.com page, kerneltlv.com website, and other places on the web.
