Podcamp Ireland, Barcamp Cork, Schoolbots, etc

Great discussion on payment processing options for a web application over on Robinb Blandford’s blog.

It looks like Podcamp Ireland was another huge success (which I sadly missed due to other engagements). And now Barcamp Cork is being revived after having kicked the whole (barcamp) thing off two years ago. I like the renewed emphasis on making it an un-conference.

Congratulations 1.0 to Damien Mulley on leaving the day job to make Mulley Communications Ltd. a full time gig.

Congratulations 2.0 to Liam Noonan on the news that SchoolBots has gone live and is now being sponsored by Google and Lenovo. SchoolBots is a brilliant computer game programming competition aimed at transition year students and above at secondary schools in Ireland. Tipperary Institute are the organisers of this competition and it’s hosted at Tipperary Institutes campus in Thurles. Schools should register their interest no later than October 31st 2008.

And congratulations 3.0 to Paul Walsh on the big news that Bebo co-founder Paul Birch has invested in his mobile startup.

Tourist Republic (based in Ennis and a regular at OpenCoffee Limerick) has found a new CTO.
