I was invited to Linuxfest Columbus 2014

So an editor in the local paper likes my addons enough to have the local Linuxfest invite me to give a presentation on WoW addons and what the life of a addon developer is like.

I figure someone else is more qualified than me to give a presentation, but if I do decide to accept the offer what topics should I cover? I imgine I'm probably going to cover things from what an addon is stuff from my addon guide

Or I can just make a rant thing about WoW in general with addons....

"invite me to give a presentation on WoW addons and what the life of a addon developer is like"

Sounds general. A little of the programming side, but mostly your experiences, I think.

You might want to make tie-ins to open source as much as possible as it is a Linux crowd.

I figure what I'm gonna do is use the presentation computer to pull up wow and just constant type /reload tabbing out to the text editor looking at the same lua script.

I'd be willing to colaborate on something for this. I've been meaning to finally goto one of the local linux cons and I've got good first hand knowledge about why sometimes opensource isnt the best license (wowmatix incident).

Did you already give your presentation?
I'd like to hear an update about how it went

Edit: Never mind, seems it's in October ...

I've actually canceled with them my brothers getting married the same day and I'll have to travel all the way to south Carolina. I do plan on being there on the 24 the though.
