Have you ever wondered why some developers spend days preparing slides, walk on stage for no money, and speak to people they don't know?
At first glance, speaking is an unthankful job. Either everybody laughs at your strong accent or some developing superheroes know more than you have. It takes you days of preparation. Speaking makes you sweat, before the talk, during the talk, and later when you watch yourself on video. Speaking makes you pee much more often than is healthy. But still, conferences are full of unpaid speakers. There are way more reasons to give a talk than not to do it. In this talk, we talk about talking. And more concretely, why you should talk as well. As a bonus, I will tell you about my biggest failures when talking (please remind me).
