One of the fun parts of the JavaOne conference, is getting your slides changed before you by the lovely legal team at Sun. If you have spoken at JavaOne before you know that you should get to the “Speaker Ready Room” as early as possible to go through your slides with the “specialist”.
Sun takes your slides and does two interesting things to them:
- Converts to lovely StarOffice (it is bad enough to go from Keynote to Powerpoint)
- Puts a TM next to every other word
This is small fry compared to what happens to others. For some reason transitions are often broken. This lead to one friend having the following issues:
- If they had a few bullets that came in one at a time, the first would be there, and NEXT would go to the next slide (not the next bullet)
- A full animation sequence had to just show the last form of the sequence and they had to talk around it
