I did almaost exactly what Rob did.
Just fired up APRSIS32 on our Clubs Netbook and ran through the various menus/dropdowns taking questions as I went. Including a live APRS Chat with Lynn.
That was sometime ago, not sure I could confidently do the same now with the latest Development version, Lynn has added so much new stuff so quickly I haven't been able to keep up.
If I were to try the same now I would have to prepare a bit of a route through the menus/dropdowns and have a bit of a script prepared but still would do it that way rather than try anything on Powerpoint.

That pretty much covered the 30 minute talk I gave, but I did discuss a bit about trackers vs APRS stations. This was somewhat discussed as stations came in.Almost everyone there commented about how much better it was to see a setup from scratch and watch it "pull in station" rather than see slides and not necessarily have access.
The difference between CW and other digital
modes comes down to 2 characters:
ASCII Character 32 (hex 20) a defined space
ASCII Character 12 (hex 0C) a carriage return (line designation)
