This repository contains the HTML source code and additional resources for a presentation that I, Gregory M. Kapfhammer, gave as a position paper at the Ninth International Workshop on Search-Based Software Testing (SBST 2016). The presentation's source code uses the reveal.js framework to control the display of each slide. I have developed a custom theme for the slides that manages the formatting, color scheme, and the use of full-screen photographs on the backgrounds.
You are welcome to use these slides as inspiration for your own presentation. If you find this example useful, could I trouble you to star this repository and then acknowledge it in your own presentation slides? If you would like to learn more about my research publications, then you can check out my GitHub repository called gkapfham/research-bibliography.
Are you interested in previewing the presentation without having to download the code and resources from the GitHub site? Well, you can! Please view Hitchhikers Need Free Vehicles! Shared Repositories for Statistical Analysis in SBST.
You can type the following command if you want to clone this repository:
git clone https://github.com/gkapfham/sbst2016-presentation.git
Please note that the presentation uses local fonts so that it can be displayed at a conference on a laptop that either may not have access to the Internet or may only have unreliable Internet access. Some browsers may disallow the loading of local fonts due to security reasons. However, it should be possible for you to view the presentation correctly when using Chrome or Chromium on the Ubuntu operating system — this is my primary development environment and the one that I used to give the presentation. However, I anticipate that the presentation slides should display correctly on a wide variety of operating systems and browsers.
I have found that some versions of Chrome and Chromium do not quickly load the full-screen images that I use as backgrounds. If you notice this problem as well, then I would encourage you to "serve" the presentation with a local Web server, such as the Ruby-based one available at jlong/serve. If you adopt this approach, then you should type the following command:
Now, you can navigate to the Web site
http://localhost:4100/sbst2016_position.html and view the presentation.
Ultimately, if you are unable to get the presentation to display correctly in
your own web browser, then please open a new issue for this GitHub repository
and I will attempt to resolve your concerns.
