Choose Your Own Adventure Presentations
Use this code to create real-time branching presentations so your audience can choose the path through your next technical talk.
This project also is the default WSGI application for the Full Stack Python Guide to Deployments book.
Here's a screenshot of the vanilla choices screen. You can of course modify this initial screen with your own styles and visualizations.
The screenshot may not look like much at first. That's where your story and content come in. To see the potential of audience voting during a presentation to determine the path of the story, check out the "see it in action" section below.
Detailed installation instructions and a walkthrough of the code base can be found in this blog post I wrote for Twilio along with the follow-up three part tutorial:

You can check out how these branching presentations work if you watch the DjangoCon 2014 video "Choose Your Own Django Deployment Adventure" or "Choose Your Own WSGI Deployment Adventure" with Matt Makai and Kate Heddleston.
Yes, we used a Flask app at DjangoCon. For shame.
This project wouldn't have been possible without Miguel Grinberg's fantastic flask-socketio library and his detailed tutorials. A huge thank you to Miguel for his coding and writing.
