When lightning talks CFPs were announced for GopherCon 2017 I was hesitant. I had given plenty of talks before and a few lightning talks, which were to small crowds, but I’ve only been writing Go for 8 months, it would be my first GopherCon, and they had and impressive line up of speakers, so I wasn’t sure what I could contribute. That damn imposter syndrome kicked in pretty hard. However, I figured what the hell, and threw my hat into the ring to see if I would get selected. Low and behold, I did, and now I had to go through with it and I am very happy I did. Even though I was extremely overwhelmed with the attention they gave to the lightning talks it also made me feel included and important enough to contribute.
