Coders’ hack space to populate Tech Town at Career Zoo

6 Jan 2015

Popular demand has fuelled the return of Tech Town to Career Zoo in Dublin next month, this time bringing with it new additions that include a coders’ hack space and an interactive installation.

Career Zoo, Ireland’s huge event for professionals and graduates that is more than just a career fair, will take place at the Convention Centre Dublin on 21 February, from 10am-5pm.

Tech Town, a platform for Irish tech companies and their game-changing technologies, quickly became a big draw for tech and engineering professionals looking for cutting-edge opportunities at Career Zoo.

The coders’ hack space will let developers bring their coding challenges across leading programming languages and they will also be able to speak with an expert in their field.

Career Zoo director Brian Ó hOisín said the event has lots in store for Tech Town 2015.

“(Tech Town) is going to be bigger and better than ever before.

“With Irish companies leading the way in terms of technology and innovation, their committed support continues to bring Tech Town to the next level,” Ó hOisín said.

‘Tremendously exciting careers’

Jennifer Condon is head of software and services at Enterprise Ireland, the agency supporting tech industry initiative IT’s Happening Here, which is sponsoring Tech Town. She said Irish tech companies offer tremendously exciting careers, being global players at the heart of innovation in Ireland.  

And with IT’s Happening Here bringing tech companies together, “this promises to deliver a fantastic showcase of Irish technology and innovation and to highlight the opportunities the sector offers for top tech talent”, Condon added.

That’s not all: February’s Career Zoo will also feature a speaker series from top companies and organisations; BioCluster, a showcase of opportunities in Ireland’s thriving life-sciences sector; and more new additions yet to be announced.

As well as employers, leading educators and innovators will also highlight graduate and upskilling opportunities.

Career Zoo is free to attend, but registration in advance is recommended.
