Description: Speaking at conferences is a great way to get to know new people, travel the country (and the world!), learn new techniques, and network with other developers. But submitting your first conference presentation can be daunting. You might not be sure how much detail to include or how formal to me. You might even think that your perspective isn't valuable.

In this PyLadies Remote class, we'll start with a discussion of impostor syndrome and how you can overcome it to start your speaking career. Multiple and diverse voices add value to all conferences, so we'll talk about how to get yourself a speaker mentor, how to build confidence, and the importance of rehearsal. Then we'll get into the nitty gritty of what conferences are looking for in a proposal. By the end of the meeting, you'll have a list of conferences to apply for, some ideas for what to present, and a plan for giving your first conference talk in 2016.
