Palms sweaty, stomach aflutter with butterflies, I stood before my first audience as a technical speaker. It was a time of many firsts for me—my first PHP conference, my first time in Europe, my first technical presentation. I had been accepted to speak at the 2005 International PHP Conference Spring Edition in Amsterdam. I was nervous, jet-lagged, and tired from an all nighter working on slides. My talk was entitled “Framing the Frameworks: What Are They and Do I Need One?” The room was jammed-packed, standing-room only. The recently-coined term rasmussed was being tossed around. I certainly didn’t deserve that level of attention.
