Why We Do Tech Talks

Public speaking is intimidating for most people, especially when it is about a technical topic. This is why the majority of professional software engineers have never given a public tech talk.

Code Chrysalis software engineers are different.

We want to make sure all Code Chrysalis Immersive students graduate with a professional tech talk and the experience that comes with it.

We like technical talks because...

đŸ’ŧ they help you stand out in the job hunt

📁 they help you build more credibility as a software engineer, especially if you are making a career change

🎤 they give you confidence

đŸĒ‚ they give you a chance to dive into a technical topic of your choice more deeply
