Ignite Galway: Aftermath


ignite_galway-01Thanks to all that attended Ignite Galway #5! We’re all really pleased with how it went: decent turnout, lovely crowd, great atmosphere, and fantastic speakers – what more do you need?

How about the video playlist from it? See below! =D

Thanks to Ciarán Winters for both filming the event and for editing all the videos so quickly!

We had a massive amount of interest from potential speakers and we’re sorry we couldn’t fit everyone in this time around. We also had a few people ask to postpone until the next time so we’re well on our way to a full speaker list for Ignite Galway #6, which is just as well because we just confirmed August 15th with Kelly’s Bar as the date for it! =)

So if you’d be interested in speaking or helping out in some other way, please drop us an email to ignite@091labs.com

A big thanks again to all our speakers:

Brendan, Michael Madden, Frank, and Philip all presented their talks on behalf of the Computer and Communication Museum of Ireland so you should definitely check it out. They’ve an open day on July 13th and everyone is invited.

Ciaran McCool

Hi all,


Sorry for the inconvenience but we have to postpone the LAN 2 weeks so we can supply some equipment that we need

Keep an eye on our Facebook for more updates and as always, spread the word around so everyone knows!

Again please accept my apologies, hopefully the 2 week delay will mean we’re better organised to give you a great event!
