Last night I gave a talk about version control, workflows & deployments the Brussels WordPress meetup. I got the idea for this talk at the new year’s Q&A session of the WP Antwerp meetup, where was talking to someone about the automatic deployments we use at the office and a couple of people said they would be interested in hearing more about that.
You can find the slides here.
This was my first time speaking about something technical in front of an audience and I learned a lot from it. I tend to talk too fast when I’m nervous and the talk itself definitly needs some work: a better explaination of what version control is for non technical people in the audience, more specific WordPress examples and a better example of using git-flow. But as a great speaker I saw recently said:
ProTip: A (good) talk is a living thing. If you're not tweaking & changing until the last minute, it's probably … flat.

I’ll be adding a bunch of things to these slides over the next couple of weeks and then I’ll hopefully be able to give the talk again at another meetup.
