Cal and Gary talk about the conferences and speaking that Gary has done recently and some of his favorite/not so favorite things about them. They talk about how it helps develop your career and how it can help make you a (perceived) expert in an area. They also discuss the difficulties around speaking and travel and being away from family. Gary also talks about his work at JetBrains, his coordination with the community and being "approachable".
