Jaime and I shared the stage once at The Lead Dev, and since then I’ve gotten to know Jaime a bit more on Twitter and by following his podcast, More Than Just Code. Jaime has spoken at a lot of conferences, but like many of us, he’s applied at an order of magnitude more. Read on to learn more about his process and some of his suggestions for new speakers.

Jason’s story is very similar to my own when it comes to speaking, but he’s been at it quite a bit longer. Now, he’s built a name for himself in the Ruby community as one of the top people in testing, and has spoken internationally at events of all sizes. I’ve dealt with the problem of testing legacy systems before, so I enjoyed Jason’s talk on the issue. Read on to learn more about Jason’s experience and advice for fellow speakers.

Keanan Koppenhaver and I met through the Chicago PHP Usergroup last year, and since we’ve been fortunate enough to share the stage at Midwest PHP, and share a meal in the airport on the way home. Speaking is always a good chance to meet other people, but it’s also a fast way to learn new skills. I’ve seen several of Keanan’s talks including one about Alexa and another about serverless functions in PHP. Keanan also has an entrepreneurial spirit, which I appreciate, so it was great to learn more about his experience speaking.
