I gave the keynote speech at the Python Ireland Conference on October 14th 2012. Here’s the summary and video:
Dublin is one of the world’s best emerging startup hubs, uniquely situated as the gateway between Europe and America. As programmers, we enjoy a blend of productivity, low costs and global reach previously inaccessible in any profession. In both geography and history, we are privileged in our ability to make a dent in the universe. In this talk, veteran entrepreneur and python programmer Sean Blanchfield makes the case that Irish programmers should be founding startups, and will share some tips for those who want to get started.
Apologies for the incessant throat-clearing – I was suffering from an ill-timed cold.
