Humor and some nice crap throwing (no not literally..). A Great talk to follow, Elizabeth knows her crap! Funny enough, a lot of things she said applies to programming in general.

Another refreshing and humorous talk by Elizabeth Naramore. I very much like the advice to take some time to get the suck out of your articles.

Motivational and entertaining. Elizabeth gets a lot of audience interaction too. Should probably and write up some of those ideas that have been hanging around.

I can only agree with everybody else: Elizabeth mixes great technical know how on the writing subject with lots of humour. The room was packed and it looked as everybody enjoyed it. It is a talk that is needed on many conferences.

Guess what, some of the shit actually stuck, and it wasn't even fluffy! Nice refreshing way of stating all the obvious things i learned way back in presentation courses :)

We can never forget you and your presentation. Just like PHP, you stick like a ball of nails (not that painful, no really, it was great fun).

Woohoo the crap throwing session with inflatable shit! This was great fun, and also had a core of very useful information. It really got me all warmed up to start writing again soon. But first I have to do my homework before I put it out there.
Great fun, great info, great session!

How can you not like a session with scatological humor? This was a great session. Anyone who is currently writing blog posts, articles, books or anything else technical needs to listen to this session. As always, Liz never fails to entertain and inform.

This was a very relaxed and entertaining talk from ElizabethN. the talk flowed nicely from point to point and I walked away feeling like - "yeah why the hell don't write about what I do"
