First of all, I would just like to thank you all for your interest in what we’re trying to accomplish here. The support we’ve received over the past few months is incredible,
it’s great to see so many people who are actively interested in getting involved with the technology scene here in Ireland.
Below is the itinerary for the event:
6.30pm: Doors open
7.10pm: Neil Spring will be giving a talk on developing for Facebook, and the Open Graph platform
7.45pm: Robert Coyle will be taking us through time with his talk, A History of Usability
8.20pm: David Power will be filling us in on his experience founding Hiri and joining Wayra, as well as where to find help to get your idea off the ground.
9.00pm: Networking Session! Free tea, coffee, beer and pizza.
Wayra Ireland is located at 28/29 Sir John Rodgersons Quay, on the first floor of the Telefonica O2 Offices. Here it is on google maps: http://goo.gl/maps/bX8Gb
It is easily accessible from the city centre. The handiest public transport options are:
1. Dublin Bus. Many busses serve Eden quay, which is a 5 minute walk away from the venue.
2. The Dart. Tara St Dart station is also a 5 minute walk away from the venue.
3. Luas Red Line. The Spencer Dock stop is right across the river.
When you arrive at the venue, tell security that you are there for an event in Wayra and you will be told where to go.
On a final note, if you have any friends or colleagues who would like to come along, please do bring them. They can sign in at the door!
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
All the best,
Dave, Closure Ireland.
Dave from Closure Ireland here. We’ve been a bit quiet these past few months, but we’ve been busy behind the scenes!
We’re delighted to finally reveal two speakers at the event:
- Neil Spring will be doing a talk on developing for the Facebook platform, an introduction to the Open Graph
- Rob Coyle will be giving a talk about the History of Usability
We have one more speaker to announce, which will happen shortly!
After the speakers do their thing, we’re going to have a codathon/networking session for whoever wants to take part. Share some ideas, make some new contacts and get involved in the tech scene!
In order to register for the event, go here.
As it says on the page, spaces are limited, so make sure to get your name down soon if you want to guarantee a spot!
Looking forward to seeing you all there
All the best,
Closure Ireland are looking for speakers at the upcoming Closure Ireland event on the 30th of May, 2013.
What is your passion? Are you a Ruby fan? PHP? Python? Do you enjoy working with frameworks? Are you a JQuery ninja? Or maybe you are more of a Backbone.js or Angular.js fan? Perhaps User Experience is your forte, or you are an advocate of responsive design?
Whatever your passion is, Closure Ireland wants to hear from you, and perhaps, if you are interested, give you a spot at our upcoming event to speak about your passion to a group of like-minded peers.
If you are interested, fire us an email at email@example.com, or get in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook with your name, your experience, and what you’d like to speak about at Closure Ireland.
Places are limited, and we already have some speakers lined up so get those emails in as quickly as possible. If you are not chosen, don’t worry, you’ll be on the list of possible speakers for our next event!
On your marks, get set….go!
