iPhone to iRobot tops Irish tech talk

26 Oct 2007

Issues ranging from robotics to the iPhone will be discussed by programming experts at the upcoming Irish Java Technology Conference (IJTC) which runs from 7 to 9 November at the Cineworld Complex in Dublin.

The IJTC, organized by IrishDev.com and the Dublin Java Users Group, is expected to bring over 500 software developers together from all over Ireland, the most ambitious developer conference here to date and one of the biggest in Europe.

The conference is community owned and controlled but has managed to gather together leading minds in competing technology companies for the occasion.

Over 18 speakers from tech leaders like Microsoft, SUN, Red Hat and Apache will talk about Java technology in the context of developing web applications as well as development for the desktop and mobile.

IJTC organizers have already noted that conference attendees are coming from across all sectors including enterprise, venture capital and individual software developers as well as students interested in a career in programming.

“Today, there is a strong demand for Java skills in the Irish software industry and at CPL we are experiencing market growth fuelled by new Java technologies and platform frameworks”, says Stephen Kirk from CPL Recruitment.

Registration charge for the three day event is €189 and can be done through http://www.ijtc.firstport.ie.
