High profile speakers for city digital event

By Staff Reporter

Northern Ireland's top tech talent will be attending Digital DNA in Belfast next month, which will feature high profile speakers from around the world.

Among the guests at the two-day event will be Leo Johnson, head of disruption at PwC and co-presenter of BBC Radio 4's Future Proofing, Jamie Bartlett, author of The Dark Net and presenter of BBC's The Secrets of Silicon Valley, and Quinn Buchanan from Leviathan Games, one of the original Grand Theft Auto developers.

They will deliver keynote speeches, take part in panel discussions and workshops, and chat to an audience from across the technology sector and across the world.

Digital DNA 2018, which takes place at St George's Market on June 19 and 20, will also showcase Belfast's tech sector, covering topics on marketing, data, cyber security, FinTech, innovation and DevOps.

For the first time, Digital DNA will be powered by principal partner PwC.

Simon Bailie, Digital DNA's commercial director, said: "The calibre of speakers at this year's Digital DNA is second to none and reflective of the esteem with which both the NI tech community and this event are held.

"These speakers are going to provoke some really interesting debate and share their insights from the coal face."
