I proposed an idea to speak at React Europe in Paris, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. I was unemployed when I spoke at the event. It took me 1 month to prepare for my 30 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 0 years. This was a for profit event. Also, It was amazing, and opened many doors for me. ;-)
