7TH EDITION OF THE STUDENT ORGANIZED TECH CONFERENCE @ PORTO

About the conference

Talk a Bit is a non-profit tech conference organized by graduating Software Engineering students from FEUP, the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. Like in previous occurrences, this year's 7th edition of the conference will focus on the future of technology.

The conference started in 2013 with less than 150 attendees, a number that has grown to 500 in last year's edition. The trend is clear and demonstrates how important it is to think about the future of technology, since today the technological world is becoming more and more a part of our lives.

VII Edition

The 7th edition of Talk a Bit will take place on January 26th, 2019, at FEUP. Starting at 9:00, the morning will be occupied by presentations from the codingforsocialimpact.org project, a local project that has FEUP students developing real projects for real organizations that aim to use those projects to make a positive social impact. Also during the morning, there will be several workshops with different subjects, which will be announced soon.

During the afternoon, there will be talks from external speakers, as well as a discussion forum. Both will cover all sorts of topics about the main theme of this conference.
