You start by cloning the github repo of Reveal.JS or by downloading the files. You will probably not have to use all the files. In fact, I removed most of them. All I kept were
index.html and the folders
plugin. All the rest, such as
Gruntfile.js, etc, were not needed for my presentation.
Every slide of a Reveal.JS presentation is a
section. You can place more than one
section inside a
section, and this would make your slides show one below the other (using the up-down arrow to show them). It is rich with transition animations and themes. You can also use Markdown syntax to write your slides. If you feel you want to upload the presentation into Slideshare, Reveal’s got you covered. By adding
/print-pdf at the URL, the presentation becomes print-friendly, and you can save it as PDF.
If you are not a coder and/or HTML is not your thing, you can still use Reveal.JS. There is a visual editor, called slides.com, which could help you make your presentations in a simple, web-based service.
You can find the presentation here.
