User Group Jeopardy

Recently, I gave another user group talk, but this time I wanted to do something a little more fun and interactive. So, after a few days of coding, I had created User Group Jeopardy

Slides and questions are written using YAML and Markdown. Once moved onto the server, you can start up a new game of Jeopardy that your participants can join into.

Each section is a series of slides followed by a handful of questions. Everyone that is joined into the game can buzz in with their answers. The first person with the correct answer gets their name shown on the main projector along with all the other devices.

For fun, I passed out Monopoly money to everyone that got an answer correct, and then at the end, the person with the most money got a Starbucks gift card!

The project is open source, so feel free to try it out for yourself. I'd love to hear if you use it in your next presentation!
