TalkoTimer: A speaking engagement helper

TalkoTimer is a simple slide timer written in Java (Processing) for my own usage.

I found myself needing to know how many slides I should have gone through and how long I’ve been speaking during speaking engagements. As a result, I decided to write one on my way to LibrePlanet 2018.

The interface allows me to specify how many slides and how long I have to talk, then gives me a display of the current time (handy when I don’t have any time cues), the current duration I’ve been talking, what slide I should currently be on, given a monotonic timer, and a visual cue of how long I have left on that specific slide via a bar that walks accross.

There’s some debug information about time per slide and a few other bits of info that I left in because it was useful.
