The only theatresport you'll need this ATD!

A staple on the Agile Testing Days: Powerpoint Roulette! (Previously named Powerpoint Karaoke but people wouldn't join because they didn't want to sing: it is about talking, not singing!).

The concept is very simple: you present a story based on a randomized title with randomized slides. You will learn how storytelling can make any presentation interesting even if the content is 100% randomly generated.

Using a Python based generator, we will generate completely new presentation decks on the go for each person presenting. Along the way we usually have a ton of fun and find some inspiration of how storytelling can improve your presentation.
