I go to the IIA conference each year but my actual anticipation of them varies. This year is of genuine interest with the following speakers in particular being of interest to me:
Dylan Collins, ex Jolt Gaming - just because :-)
The 11.15am Panel Debate "Have we the smarts?" which includes Colm Greally (Mobile Entrepreneur, DigitalReachGroup)
The afternoon session (after a lunch time address by Minister Richard Bruton, will be interested to see if he actually gets his portfolio) is more geared towards geeks with a strong Open Data theme so I will be taking part in some of the break out sessions.
Say hello if you are there. More here: http://www.iia.ie/events/iia-conference/programme/
