I'm traveling to India again, to give a training in Pune. If any of my colleagues or former students is reading this, I'll be happy to meet. I'll be there for about 2 weeks this time. It's a great time to visit India: it's not too hot and it's not raining (unlike in Israel, at the moment). Last time I was there, I almost drowned in the streets of Mumbai.
Of course, I'll be updating my Pune Tips page while I'm there.
On the technical side, I'm using my MacBook Pro to do the presentations. The original presentations are in PowerPoint format. Converting them to Keynote worked very well. I had just minor issues which I fixed while going over the slides, which I had to do anyway. I also have Windows running as a backup, just in case.
Last time I was using the Logitech Cordless Presenter. It's a great device. You can tell that the people who designed it are giving many presentations. It's hasn't changed in years, just to prove how close to perfection this device is. I don't have it anymore, so I'll be using my Apple Remote instead. On the plus side, it is smaller. However, it works by infrared, so you have to point it at the machine and have a clear line of sight. There's also a useful piece of free software called iRed Lite which allows you to customize the remote for your needs. I'll write about my experience with the Apple Remote when I'm done.
