West Cork’s First Major Tech Conference – OFFSITE

3rd of September 2012 by conor

The lovely people down at WCDP (West Cork Development Partnership) in Clonakilty, have just announced an all-new Tech Conference called OFFSITE.

I’m really pleased they are doing this, and not just because I’m one of the speakers. There is a huge amount of tech activity happening in Munster but all of those companies rarely get a chance to meet and share ideas, knowledge or problems.

OFFSITE aims to get us all in the one place for a day and do exactly that. In addition to great speakers like Jerry Kennelly, John Dennehy, Donal Cahalane and Ger Keohane, they are also experimenting with a BarCamp session where anyone can offer to speak on anything in the tech sphere. Like all BarCamps, no self-pimpage will be allowed.

The other great aspect of the event is cost. Not €1900, not €900, it’s just €40 to cover those bits that WCDP isn’t allowed to sponsor. That includes lunch and coffee breaks.

Head on over and register. It’s on Thursday 27 September in the Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery, just a few miles from Clonakilty.

I hope we see people from across the country attending. This could be the start of something special.
