  4. Attend the full day coaching session, including small group practice.

Why should you attend ?

Giving technical talks is a great way to give back to an open source project.

You will consolidate your knowledge on the topic you have selected.

We will help you deliver your talk in a non judgemental, friendly environment. If you're happy with it we will publish it on our Youtube channel, but you will decide if you want this to happen.

You'll learn techniques to share your knowledge and results with your fellow students or professional colleagues.

Important information

Because we want participants to get the most out of this program there will be a limited availability.

If the session is over subscribed, the Python Ireland committee will select the successful applicants, its decision will be final. Yet this will be a good sign and might encourage us to renew the experience.

Your talk will be programmed in one of our monthly meetup, they run every second Wednesday of the month and start at 18:30.

We will ask a symbolic financial contribution of € 20 to help us cover the costs and a token of commitment. A link to buy a ticket will be provided to successful applicants.

The main coaching session will be run on a Saturday (provisional date is 23rd of January 2021), with a general presentation in the morning, and small groups workshops in the afternoon.
