In this special episode of the podcast, we sit down with Leslie Hawthorn who is a senior manager for vertical community strategy at Red Hat and a long time friend in the open source world. We leverage her extensive conference speaker knowledge for this "how to" for first time conference speakers. We talk about ideation, planning, psychology, and just getting through the presentation as a way to help folks that have thought about giving a talk about something they care and know about, but have reservations about doing that in front of 10, 100, or 1000 people.
Episode show notes and transcript are available below.
