Suze Shardlow (she/her) : "Fighting The Fear Of Public Speaking"

In tech, we hear a lot about how getting into public speaking can boost your dev career. But, for most people, the mere thought fills them with terror. They see a call for proposals (CFP) and believe they have nothing to contribute. In this talk, Suze Shardlow addresses a number of the common limiting beliefs held by developers at all levels of experience and shows you how to take those first steps.
