Watch a lot of talks

Speaking and CFPs and the world of conferences have their own special language, and like any language, you learn best by immersion.

My YouTube Watch List is 400+ videos long. When I have lunch or am bored, I pull up a video and watch a talk. Most conferences directly copy and paste titles and talk abstracts into the videos. Start paying attention to those since you’re about to start writing them. Watching talks also trains the YouTube algorithm to start recommending them rather than entertainment, which is a nice nudge when I procrastinate.
