I proposed an idea to speak at PyCon in Montreal, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event asked me to buy a ticket at full price, and I was not paid to speak. The event did not pay for my travel and accommodation. My employer paid all of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 1 week to prepare for my 30 minutes 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. Also, Fantastic time at PyCon, however most of the talks were aimed at beginners
