This is about understanding the process of public speaking at tech conferences, from the call for papers all the way to the follow-up after the conference is over.
Many people in the tech industry have thought about speaking at a conference, but it can be quite overwhelming to find a good place to start. This begins with overcoming fear, finding a topic, figuring out how and where to submit your talk, and finally preparing a presentation and delivering it.
In this session, I will go over the process I went through to finally speak at a conference. I will cover points such as finding a good topic, how and where to submit presentations, and how to deal with rejection and acceptance of your topic. I will also explain my procrastinatory approach to calls for papers.
