I was invited to speak at CSSConf in Florida, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was not paid to speak. The event assisted with part of my travel and accommodation. My employer paid some of my travel expenses, and I used my PTO to speak. It took me 5 days to prepare for my 30 minutes speaking slot, and I had a mostly good time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 1 year. This was a not for profit event.
