Announcing details of the line-up for 404, Jackie Slattery, event co-founder, said: “This is an event by techies for techies – it’s not about big brands making a commercial pitch; it’s about celebrating Ireland’s tech community and showcasing all that’s new in tech – in Ireland and further afield.

“It’s the Ultimate Tech Meetup, where attendees can network with their peers and talk to over 40 meet-up organisers.

“For tech companies attending the event, 404 provides an opportunity to network with members of the tech community in Ireland.

“In developing the programme, we’ve done extensive research and crowd-sourced content directly from the tech community, so we’ve created something authentic, different and community-driven. The line-up is incredibly exciting, with speakers and performers that are new to the Irish tech event scene.

“At 404, you’ll get an opportunity to hear from leading Irish and international technology experts and to try out the latest AR/VR and gaming technologies. We’ll also have interactive tech performances and installations, a series of lightning talks and a great after-party, including a Javascript DJ, in the chapel of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.”

The one-day event is targeted at experienced tech professionals, and those wishing to attend must register their interest in advance at www.404.ie.  Further information on the line-up for the event is also available at www.404.ie.
