Who We Are

Talk a Bit is a conference organized every year by FEUP students in the last year of the Master's in Informatics and Computing Engineering.

Started in 2013 and currently on the way to its 11th edition, Talk a Bit offers its participants a wide range of conversations with the objective not only to know the state of the industry through the voice of the professionals who work in it, but also to promote the debate of ideas among all the participants of the conference. Participants can also to attend some workshops.

With the help of our partners, people will be able to get to know better some companies in the area and even find some job opportunities.

Finally, in this edition we are back with the event in a fully presential mode on January 28, 2023 at FEUP with the theme "Data. How it's created, how it's stored, how it's streamed, how it's processed".
