A Year of Tech Talks
By Mike Irving - Published: 7/11/2023

About a year ago, I penned a blog to coincide with my return to in-person speaking, following two years away post-2020.

Last week, I was in Manchester delivering a talk at Manchester Tech Festival, and it occurred to me that I've been busy doing talks for a good solid year now.


Not only has Dot Net North returned in-person, but Macc Tech is also now active again.

I've not been confined to Macclesfield and Manchester though; I have travelled far and wide.


This blog post is a look back...

Obvious really, but the "Macclesfield Hedgehogs" story had to be told here!

.NET South West - 15th August 2023

Interest in the .NET, IoT and Hedgehogs! story had been constant through the year, and I was asked to talk at St. Bartholomew's House, Bristol, the first outing of the talk in the South of England.

Manchester Tech Festival - 31st October 2023

Just as it began, the final outing of .NET, IoT and Hedgehogs! for the year was in Manchester, at The People's History Museum for the 'Software Engineering and Tech Quality' track of Manchester Tech Festival.

It was an honour to share a stage with many other bigger name speakers.

I'm not too sure what's in store for 2024 yet, but it's highly likely I'll again be doing a technical talk somewhere. Events will be listed on my Public Speaking & Events page.
