Managing MySQL the Slack Way: How Google Deploys New MySQL Servers

I’ll be presenting about Slack (the open sourced tool kit we use for deployment software configuration) at the MySQL user’s conference in Santa Clara in late April. The talk will focus on the interesting aspects of Slack as it relates to MySQL and should be fun. A DBA mate of mine is gonna present with me, so it should be a barrel of laughs.

Hypothetically speaking

Hypothetically speaking, if you needed to write a four hour long presentation (probably around 200 slides), shared with another speaker, and wanted to keep the style consistent and conforming with your approved corporate style, how would you do it?

I’m thinking of some sort of intermediate language, which can then be used to generate slides from a template? Is there anything like that out there?
