Speaking in the leadup to 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 tech meet-up organisers.

 “Using the event app, attendees will be able to search the event database and plan advance meetings at the event, whether they want to meet like-minded techies, potential collaborators or their next employer.

 “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.”

Participating tech companies include Accenture, Aer Lingus, BearingPoint, CarTrawler, Demonware, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, IBM, Liferay, Nitro, Oath, Ocuco, Pivotal, Pramerica, Qualtrics, SIG, Version 1 and Ward, amongst others.
