The notion of conference speaking both excites & scares me.
I just gave my first 2 android conference talks
When I finally worked up the courage to submit conference talk proposals, I did so with the intention of documenting the speaking process if I were selected.
I hoped that by openly sharing my experiences that I could perhaps connect with others that are considering taking the same leap. And that, by seeing my excitement/fears/anxiety/joy, they may recognize that there is nothing special required to add your voice to the public forum.
