Northern Ireland's biggest digital technology conference has teamed up with Aer Lingus for the launch of Digital DNA 2015.

Digital DNA involves events in October and November promoting technology to businesses in Northern Ireland with the aim of helping them grow at home and abroad.

Highlights include Digital Business in Titanic Belfast on October 15, when global giants like Google, Twitter and Atlas will join forces with homegrown success stories like STATSports, based in Newry, Budget Energy in Londonderry and Chain Reaction Cycles based in Ballyclare, to offer business owners advice on digital technology.

And on October 14, Digital Futures in Belfast City Hall will feature a competition where secondary school pupils will be tasked with using technology to solve a problem currently faced by businesses or consumers.

The winning teams will jet off to Silicon Valley to visit Stanford University and Google's headquarters and London for a trip to Microsoft later in the year, courtesy of Aer Lingus.
