  44. @galuhsahid Q: What if it’s rejected?

  46. @galuhsahid Q: But really what if it’s rejected?

  47. @galuhsahid Rejection Doesn’t mean your talk sucks - Some conferences

    don’t have enough space to hold 50 awesome talks - Sometimes two people submit similar topics with very minor differences - Sometimes conferences have a theme they are focusing on and your talk doesn’t fit the topic and it’s OK!
  48. @galuhsahid Rejection Doesn’t mean you have to throw your talk

    away - Give a lightning talk! - Speak at meetups! - Write a blog post out of it!

  50. @galuhsahid Your thought, perspective, & knowledge means something to someone
