DemoCamp at MediaCamp2

We notice that a lot of attendees have the desire to demo what they are currently working on or share  a service they believe will be relevant to anyone. Remember you are not trying to pitch / sell a product or service at a BarCamp, as this is usually frowned upon.

So what will the DEMO sessions be like?

Two rules

  1. No powerpoints allowed. Why no .ppt ? Well, do you have working software / service or don’t you?
  2. You don’t have 30 minutes, you have a total of 9 minutes. 6 minutes for your demo,  and 3 minutes for questions.

“your honest passion is sufficient, no need for spin repeat audience questions briefly into the mic so that everyone can hear”

Architecture of a great demo


  • 0:00 to 0:20
  • State the problem (sometimes it feels like the whole world wants your attention)
  • Engage the audience (we can’t help you with the co-worker who wants to sit in your office and chat)


  • 0:20 to 0:30
  • My product is…


  • 0:30 to 5:15
  • Awesome!
  • Awesome!
  • Doesn’t suck
  • This has to be the main focus of the presentation – show the entire product in detail


  • 5:15 to 5:45
  • Synchronized blast to phones throughout the audience
  • Smart closing lines


The Demo sessions will run for up to two hours on Saturday March 14, 2009 and another two hours on Sunday 15, March 2009
