Hey Scott,
Thank you for participating in this AMA.

I'd like to ask you about speaking.
How do you find and secure speaking engagements?
What are your recommendations to find the right opportunities?

 

I fill out "CFPs" (calls for papers). It's like a job application for a talk you want to give. Figure 10 to 1 return. Start with a brownbag at your job, then local meetups, then local or regional code camps, then larger conferences. Also consider ComedySportz (really) and Toastmasters.
