If you've ever been to a tech conference, you know the thrill of being part of a gathering where ideas flow faster than the coffee. Whether you're a seasoned conference-goer or a first-timer, the journey from submitting a Call for Paper (CFP) to standing on stage is a rollercoaster of excitement, nerves, and hopefully, success.
Last week I had the opportunity to speak at VueJS Amsterdam ❤️ together with a colleague of mine. It was my first time doing a talk at such a big event and thought to share my journey, and give you considerations for when you will be giving a first talk!
Small disclaimer: I am by no means an expert in speaking, but that’s exactly why I think this post gives you insights for starting out. Also, the talk we gave was about a certain technology, but I think this article is generic enough to apply for any topic.
