Why have you agreed to be involved in the Belfast Technology Conference 2015?
I decided to get involved in Belfast Technology Conference because over the years I have worked to promote jobs in IT in schools, and I’ve become increasingly passionate about getting the message across that the IT industry is a great place to be. In particular, I want to raise awareness that there’s such a wide range of careers to choose from – you don’t have to be a coder! The industry is booming, worldwide – in Northern Ireland in particular. There is something to suit all skill sets, and I hope that people leave BelTech with a sense of this. Also, I want to let everyone in on the secret – working in IT is fun- honestly!
