You've made it through the first day of the conference — congratulations! Now you're slightly curious about speaking, and vaguely wondering whether that's something you should consider next year (but not entirely sure whether to go for it).

Here's some encouragement, guidance on putting together a proposal, and suggestions on how to write, prepare, and practice your talk. Plus tips on how to learn by observing this year's speakers.

And if you succeed and find yourself on the programme for YAPC Pisa next year? Part 2, (hopefully scheduled near the start of that conference), will give advice on the speaking bit, actually giving your presentation.
