Thoughts from our OSCON program chair +Kelsey Hightower on his experiences with tech conferences, including how speaking is important for members of underrepresented groups: "I’ve largely overcome my fears around submitting a CFP (Call for Papers), but I’ll never forget what it’s like to feel unqualified, or believe that an event won’t accept an outsider from an underrepresented group...Representation matters, and it’s the main reason I accept so many speaking opportunities: I want to be the reflection some people are looking for."
