Teenage Kicks Comes to SXSW

11 Mar

Austin is roughly 4,600 miles from Northern Ireland but the natural gravitation or more accurately the organisational skills of Digital Derry means that on Day One of SXSW a few of us Maiden City natives (and honorary Derry folk) were able to catch-up.  It was great to see some of the city’s and Northern Ireland’s increasingly thriving digital sector make the trek to SXSW and also get the chance to meet some people whose paths I’d never even crossed at home!

Check out below a list of the diverse Northern Ireland organisations who alongside myself for Learning Pool are in attendance at SXSW.
