The Digital Skills Academy is to launch a series of ‘digital debates’, which will see two industry experts “reflect on the technology industry in Ireland and debate new ideas to shape Ireland’s digital technology future”.
The first debate will see Irish Times journalist Karlin Lillington go head-to-head with Professor Martin Curley, vice president of Intel Corporation, to contest whether Ireland deserves the accolade “tech capital of Europe”.
Moderating the debate will be RTÉ Technology and Science Correspondent, Will Goodbody. The debate will be hosted by Digital Skills Academy at the Wood Quay Venue, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 at 6pm on Wednesday, 2nd April 2014.
Register for a free ticket through Eventbrite.
Digital showcase for talent seekers
The digital debate event will coincide with a showcase of digital projects developed by the current participants of the Digital Skills Academy’s digital technology degree programme, WebElevate.
The digital projects, which range from innovative mobile, web and tablet apps, to mobile optimised websites and social media campaigns, will be showcased to recruiters and companies in hiring mode, prior to and after the digital debate event.
