Things Experienced Speakers Wish They’d Known: Tips For First-Time Conference Speakers

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This sort of article is usually awful but this one is pretty good. I'm including it here because it suggests "tech folks might also like to try out Reveal.JS, which lets you write fully responsive slides in HTML or Markdown (perfect for code snippets!)." This remined me of things like Jupyter notebooks, which embed code into documents; it doesn't look like Reveal takes you that far, though. There are other good suggestions in the article as well: begin with the demo, have a version of the demo pre-recorded (just in case), and most importantly, "the audience is rooting for you" and "the audience wants you to succeed." Remember that and you'll be fine.
