Public speaking may induce fear, yet a terrific way to connect with the Drupal world is by giving talks at any of the Drupal events worldwide — conferences, camps, and Meetups. But preferably not in that order, as it is advisable to first polish your presentation and speaking skills by beginning with smaller venues. Consider giving talks on some aspect of Drupal you know well or would like to learn better, since the surest method to learn a topic is to teach it to others. Presentations will be appreciated by all, especially the meeting organizer. Every one of us has something we can share with other Drupal enthusiasts.
