Late last year I was contacted by the organizers of MCE Conf and was asked to speak. Since it fit within my schedule (which can be its own challenge these days) I accepted without thinking too much about it.
Shortly after my acceptance I had heard that there was some controversy surrounding the conference about a comment made by one of the organizers who had attended another conference. After reading up on the controversy I figured; “oh well, how bad can it be?”
The short answer? It was amazing. I absolutely loved every minute of the conference.
