- If demoing a terminal
- ensure the font is large (typically 2 shift-ctrl-+)
- ensure your color and font are readable from arms length to the keyboard as a heuristic
- If demoing a browser
- when on a widescreen monitor, shrink the browser width to 1300-1400 pixels
- increase browser zoom if possible (ensure it doesn't break styling)
- If demoing a presentation
- ensure you hide or remove action bars or do a full screen presentation
- Include initial background on the topic. For example, if demoing an update to the Content Views UI, remind the audience what a content view is and how to get to the starting point of the UI.
- Remember that you are trying to inform users why the change is important for them to know and how they can make use of it.
- Turn on Q&A application on Hangout page before starting hangout
- Start by introducing what the general theme of the Demo is, and the overall flow, include:
- What the demo is for
- When and how questions can be taken (e.g. at the end, after each presenter, using the Q&A app, whether the moderator will read the questions or the presenters)
- If there is a time limit, mention at the start for the presenters that you will be timing and enforcing
