Lost, Lost, all is Lost

... well, not on the ITR project. The workshop went swimmingly (all hail to Charlie and Kader, and thanks to Andrew for a nice little demo). Nothing dispels the Demo Demon like a little Emeril design philosophy.1

Who's the bad LJ poster with no cut for Lost spoilers? Shaft!Collapse )

1 The "cooking show" approach to software demos, adopted and refined by yours truly since 1996, is to favor live demos over screenshots whenever possible, but to have "fall back" measures in case of network outages, OS glitches, etc. Recordings (such as our BNJ animation), pre-loaded applets, and other preparations are key. Always have something to show, picking up from the next stage, in case you have a problem or (in rare cases) a crash. I've used the cooking show method before and though I have never had a major show-stopper crash in a software demo, I have had minor environment errors that I was able to get through because I prepared 2-5 "copies" of every "dish", the way Emeril Lagasse does.
