This is a summary of my talk and my experience.
After talking with a friend, he introduced me to one of Appsworld organizers who looked for speakers for html5 track. AppsWorld has been twice in the past - focusing on mobile development as well as desktop development.
I gave talks in the past, in Hebrew only. I was then given the challenge to stand in front a worldwide audience, speaking of my passion, in a language I feel comfortable with - but never gave a 30 minutes professional talk with. Being honest, breaking the barrier of speaking in front of an audience was quite hard for me - and lots in favor of my current working place, Tikal, and specificaly, Tikal’s Knowledge CEO - Lior Kanfi. So - I saw this opportunity of speaking in front of an audience in English a great challenge and a great experience that I can benefit from - both Professionally and Personally.
The HTML5 Track focused on the new era of developing web applications - featuring HTML5 vs native apps debate and HTML5 related case studies.
I was quite nervous and excited during the break that was before my lecture. On the days before the lecture, I practiced the things I was about to say, and just from time to time, practicing it on the subway, whenever I sat to eat something and whenever I had time to practice.
I got a great and positive feedback - both for the subject of my talk, as well as for the clear and fluent English.
I managed to record my talk on video so - the talk is available on youtube.
