This is a community meetup run by TechExeter CIC (http://techexeter.uk) for people who work in tech. This super-friendly group includes engineers, designers, software developers, data scientists and many more tech related professions.
The meetups are normally informal gatherings which begin with three 10 minute talks, Q&As and then networking afterwards.
The events are great opportunities for peer-learning and meeting other professionals in the field of tech. The informal environment and friendly audience make it a great place to try public speaking and practice presentation skills - we welcome speakers on many different subjects, whether it is their first or one-hundredth talk!
TechExeter (http://techexeter.uk) also runs conferences and helps curate and run other specialist tech events during the year.
