One great way to get experience is to get up, do it, and pretend you
know what the hell you're talking about. As long as you talk fast and
look confident, people almost never catch you out. ;) If you do get
caught out by a question you don't know the answer to - just own up.
I've done that enough times, when it came to a new feature in a coming
release that I just didn't know anything about, for instance. If you're
straightforward and up front about it, no-one minds.

We have a couple talks along these lines that other people have given


mine from 2009 and liam/rhe's which was based on mine. You could
certainly grab that and update it a bit for the current day and go ahead
and do it!

I don't think any of the RH staff are going to be there - last time I
checked with tao wu and hongqing they hadn't been able to get the
arrangements in place to get there. I don't know if any other community
members are going to make it, but do let us know if you are!
