I generate my presentations with [org-mode|http://orgmode.org/] in emacs and the [beamer LaTeX class|http://ctan.math.utah.edu/ctan/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/beamer/doc/beameruserguide.pdf](pdf). I then display them as PDFs with the Preview app on my Mac, running in full screen mode. I use [iRed Lite|http://www.filewell.com/iRedLite/] to enable controlling the presentation with my mac's included remote. I also use [Caffeine|http://www.lightheadsw.com/caffeine/] to prevent my laptop from going to sleep during the presentation. Here's a nice guide on [how to give a presentation|http://glenc.info/2009/10/22/how-to-give-a-presentation/] by Glen Campbell. This is the checklist I'm working on for everything I need to do prior to giving a presentation: * vga & hdmi dongle * laptop power cord * apple remote * spellcheck presentation * pdf presentation uploaded to website * floss teeth * check clothes * final spellcheck of source file * generate pdf from emacs * upload pdf to my website * reboot laptop * start caffeine * start iRed Light * close extra programs * phone ringer off * laptop volume off * start preview * advance to first slide * connect to projector * fullscreen preview I just used this to give a talk at [BayLISA|http://www.baylisa.org] on April 22, 2011. The slides from my talk can be found [here on my website|http://www.hollenback.net/junk/YahooReleaseManagement.pdf].
