Just spent two breakneck days at the BelTech conference. Had a great time meeting dozens of techies on day one and hundreds of kids and educators on day two.
Thanks to Tom Gray of Kainos for the vision and congratulations to Sheree Acheson also of Kainos for launching Women Who Code Belfast.
Thanks also to Orlaith and Connla of Aisling Events for their military precision in running a tech conference. Apple and Google should hire you.
Thanks to Paul Braithwaite of the Building Change Trust for giving me a platform to speak about social innovation through digital.
Thanks to Willis McBriar of VIEW Digital for helping me man the Coder Dojo and 3D Dojo stand.
Thanks to Stuart and Ron from Mac Sys for paying for the island stand that would house not only Digital Circle and Coder Dojo but also Farset Labs and VIEW Digital.
And finally thanks to the US Consul General Gregory S. Burton and his wife for hosting us at the official residence at the close.
