My College in the news

Tipperary Institute were hosting Games Fleadh 2008 on Thursday. It a series of computer game programming competitions designed to get students interested in software development, programming, and computer game design.

I wasn't competing, my hand put me out of action at just the wrong time. But I was there helping out on the day. If you watch closely, you might just spot a familiar back.

Events like this are important because fewer Irish students are choosing ICT as a career. If the computer companies lose their workforce, they're going to start pulling out of the country.

  1. Now I'm just gonna have to imagine that familiar back … for some reason the vid is only showing a gray screen :(4000 to 1800! What, I wonder, is the reason?

  2. It is a long road to Tipperary, it is a long road to home :sing:How cool watching the Irish news. I didn't see your back, sorry.Hey, looks like your way in for a job when you graduate, MJ! Good for you!

  3. I didn't know off the top of my head, but I did a little digging and found this.Seems the big three are business and law, construction, and enginerring. Computing comes about 6th.
