I proposed an idea to speak at ForwardJS in San Francisco. This was a local event. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was not paid to speak. I took unpaid time off to speak. It took me 2 days to prepare for my 6 hours speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 2 years. This was a not for profit event.
