How you can become a first-time speaker at a tech conference as a developer.

I gave a talk at PyCon Germany this year and I was just chatting with my friend Sergei who wants to get into presenting at conferences and is looking for a way to get started:


My goal for now it to get ready for the spring season of conferences, and pick one where I could present something. I want to try presenting stuff on conferences, as it is a great public speaking experience for me and… free attendance of a good conference 🙂

Where do you start if you want to present something?


If you’re thinking about speaking at a tech conference that’s a fantastic idea! It’s a lot of fun (it’s a lot of work, too) – but it’s totally worth it.

It’s great for getting in touch with people, making new connections, finding a new or better job, and to improve your public speaking skills.

(Plus you get tagged as a speaker on your conference badge – a great conversation starter 😜)

In this video I’m going to teach you how you can become a first-time conference speaker in the next few months.

I’ll explain how to find a suitable conference, how to write a proposal for a talk and submit it to the conference organizers.
