Every year eight of the most original and innovative thinkers in Ireland gather in Ballyvourney, Co.Cork to give a day of talks on the ground-breaking projects they are working on. The name of the conference is “Imbolc”, and perhaps the most innovative facet of the whole event is that it is taking place entirely through the medium of the Irish language. Maithu's CTO, Michael Thornhill, was delighted to be invited along to speak this year and even more so when he got to play a few tunes with Donal Lunny afterwards. Michael presented on the topic of mobile app development and the Irish language, we could not find any footage of his Banjo playing (which is just as well) Click on the link below to see the full presentation.
