In order to enforce the slide rules at Ignite we had to figure out how to make the slides auto-advance. If you're practicing for an Ignite talk you should definitely practice with the slides on autopilot.
First, select all of the slides at once. Go to the "Inspector" floating window and select the icon at the top left, second from the left (its a rounded rectangle icon).
Change "Start Transition" from "on click" to "automatically" and then set the delay to 15 seconds. We'll be using a Dissolve transition. Then hit play!
Ignite is meant to be fun, informative, mind expanding - but not salesy or commercial. This is not the place to pitch your product or personal services. If you get up on stage and start promoting yourself, your slides will be replaced by the flaming jackass on the screen and you'll be boo-ed off the stage. Don't be a flaming jackass!
Ignite Corvallis 2 presentations. If nothing else, watch the one on Train Porn and Sexy Social Media:
