I started this blog to record ideas on running projects, making better presentations, and so on, in context of scientific research.
The goal of this site is to write down instructions, HowTos, protocols and checklist that could help manage research projects, get through grad school, and improve professional climate in academia.
Why is it called “Extreme Sciencing”? I shamelessly copied Extreme Programming for that name. In my experience, we can learn a lot from practices of software development, such as Agile, Scrum, or DevOps. I have spent time studying those and tried to borrow and adapt things that might help us with better sciencing.
Whether you are getting ready to review somebody’s presentation, or you are presenting your slides to a supervisor or a friend for feedback, here is a handy check-list of questions you should be able to answer.
First, few organizational questions:
When is the presentation?
How much time you will be given? (total talk time, Q&A time)
Will it be in front of live audience, broadcasted, or both?
