Discussion on: How Do I Start Giving Talks on Coding?

Do you have any public speaking experience? I personally started within my own company. Presenting to other coworkers before going to public events.

Yeah I'm pretty good on public speaking in general. I'm an adjunct professor and used to give in-person lectures regularly (now it's all online).

I'm more looking for advice on how to actually get signed up for talks (what websites people use to organise them / what groups have local chapters in lots of cities / small developer conferences looking for speakers) and advice about how to structure talks for a technical audience.

Examples of slides / videos or general advice for engaging the audience would all be appreciated!
