At Big Nerd Ranch, we follow a pretty minimal style for our slides. It is important to us, however, that our slide shows go in and out of subversion easily. Also, it is important that we can easily generate a book from a collection of slide shows. As such, we have written our own replacement for PowerPoint.

BigShow is for playing the slide shows – not for creating them. The slide shows are created in a text editor. The disk image has both the application and an example show. Download the application and an example show.
