Video: ALD10 Potluck Unconference

Huge thanks to everyone who came to the ALD10 Potluck Unconference last night at the Centre for Creative Collaboration! It was a really great evening with Maggie Philbin kicking things off in great style and many others speaking eloquently about their heroine.

Thanks to Lloyd Davis and Brian Condon for inviting us to use the space and for their support and help. Brian streamed the event live and, for those of you who missed it, here’s the video:

Further thanks to Maggie for her support, to Maggie Berry from Women in Technology for helping organise and Grace Ross for her help on the day.

ALD10 is a part of European eSkills Week

Ada Lovelace Day is also a part of the European Commission’s eSkills Week, a series of events across Europe seeking to ” highlight the growing demand for skilled ICT users and professionals to drive a competitive and innovative Europe”. Although the week itself was at the beginning of March, there are still activities going on through April. Take a look at their News and Events page for more, or follow them on Twitter, or via their blog or podcast.
