Shane's Open Source slides

A better place to write and store slide decks for the various open source conferences that I speak at. Be sure to look for speaker notes!

Please view this on the web at


After years of using an office suite to craft slides using a custom template for every conference, I'm switching to simple Markdown-written slides using one of the modern browser-based JS slide tools.

Using Remark, I usually run a slide deck locally (having seen far too many conference wifi networks barf). Open a command terminal, cd to the /slides/ directory, and then do:

ruby -run -ehttpd . -p8000 or do: python -m http.server 8000

Then open your browser to http://localhost:8000/apachecon (for example) and click on the .html file for the presentation to run.


I speak regularly at ApacheCon and Apache:BigData on community and branding issues around Apache projects. I've also spoken at All Things Open, OSCON, Ignite, Camel One, the Software Freedom Law Conference, and the PLI Law Education conference.
