🙋🏽‍♀️ Help thread: Module 4 - Public Speaking

Public speaking can be scary, but preparation is the key to success. In this module, you'll create a talk and write an abstract ready to submit to conferences or publish for your community. This is a thread to ask questions around it. Please use the search before posting.

Hello! I noticed in the "Completion checklist" that a file talk-proposal.jpg is required to be submitted. I believe this should be Thanks :).
Also aware, but updating the existing repos is a big task. Thanks for flagging!

Hey, Can anyone confirm that our talk title need not to be always related to technology?

This is right. It could be a talk about something else than technology.
Thank you for the help.

Can you tell what are you looking from the talk like which aspects would be considered for evaluation?

This submission helps you yo plan giving a talk proposal for any conference. What we look at the end is to read an abstract and title, based on the information you provide in the "planning section" of the submission, that any conference would have.

There is a question What story might you be able to tell? i am writing the whole story Estimated reading time: 4 minutes, 28 seconds. Contains 895 words is it ok?
can you please elaborate Talk proposal?

In order to give a talk it is easier for attendees to learn about the topic if there's a story they can relate to. There's no limit on the amount of word nor a minimum.

Hello, so I'm a bit confused about the talk topic and the talk title. What's actually the difference between the two.
