Yes, the sources are LaTeX Beamer.

Updated in version 1.1.

I shall skip this for now. I have provided lot of reference links in
the presentation. The idea is to get people started, and once they
have the self-confidence, and self-belief, they can start to explore
more macros, wiki documentation, and also communicate in the channels
for packaging queries and support.

Thanks for your feedback,
