We teach and perform on camera, podcasts, webinars and in person as a DevRel. Each format has its’ own challenges and techniques for success. As a professor at Vanderbilt University in new media art and performance, I taught students from diverse backgrounds to perform clear communication across online mediums. In this short talk I will bring advice from live broadcast tv, film, video and audio engineering to help you present your best self to your community.
