Last month, the official Tech/Life Ireland launch event was attended by the movers and shakers of Ireland’s tech industry in Dublin’s Marker Hotel. It was officially launched by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor, who praised the initiative as a ‘wonderful portal’ – and included insight into the tech industry across the country.
At the event, we asked people to share their thoughts on the tech sector in Ireland with anyone interested in moving to work in this exciting industry. You can check out their contributions below – and read more in our Tech in Ireland section about why people love living in Ireland and working in challenging tech careers.
