Course description 

Public speaking can be terrifying – but it can also be a really effective way to share your ideas, inspire your teams, and develop your career as a technologist.

 

This is a 2-day course about how to create, refine, and deliver great technical talks at conferences and technology meetups. It’s around 50% presentation and classroom-style training, and 50% collaboration and hands-on sessions. 

By the end of the course, all of the attendees will have created and prepared two short (3-minute) talks, received some suggestions and audience feedback.

"There were, genuinely, so many little moments where my mind was blown during Dylan’s workshop. I wish I had written all of it down, to better be equipped to share all of it."

Riz Khan, DDD East Midlands workshop attendee, July 2019
