What problem does this solve?[edit]

Also, some previous research into the type of the audience helped me to customize my talk accordingly. For FOSSASIA, below are the insights into the audience diversity:

  • Not everyone is from a tech background
  • There are various native speakers of several languages
  • The talks have an audience strength of around 40 people on an average
  • The audience has many students too (who are willing to take the opportunity of involving themselves with open source)

What is the solution?[edit]

Keeping these points in mind, I had planned on moving ahead with discussing the extension with focus on:

  • basic key idea
  • motivation
  • how was it created
  • challenges faced
  • future work
  • explain steps for installing the extension
  • a slide showing all the links to relevant webpages
  • questions- 2-3 mins

In short, for a conference like FOSSASIA, it's better to not get into lots of technicality - since people are not prepared and not all are from tech background. it's better to rather discuss the idea behind the project.
