I proposed an idea to speak at DroidCon NYC in New York, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 7 days to prepare for my 40 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 6 months. Also, My employer pays for conferences travel and accommodation generally but I always ask conferences to cover it before approaching my employer
