How to present projects:

  • Audience : The audience are folks who have a high level understanding of technology but are not technical experts. Assume zero knowledge of solidity.
  • User Story : Start with a user story, such as person A wanted censorship resistance storage so we invited IPFS. Then dive into the needed details.
  • Duration : Try to keep the demo / presentation to under 5 minutes
  • Request : Describe the ask early to set the context for the demo or project. Ask can be for funds, feedback problem or project, or to give the project greater awareness.
