Coder Dojo has swept the the world in recent years; it’s a grassroots movement helping children to develop computer skills. Having started in Ireland, it’s now a global phenomenon, and next month, Kilkenny will play host to DojoCon 2018, a conference for people involved in CoderDojo around the world. Blacknight is sponsoring DojoCon 2018 and […]

I mentioned earlier this week that we were sponsoring WordCamp in Kilkenny and that I was attending. It now transpires that a large number of our staff will be attending, so it looks like Blacknight will be invading Kilkenny! By the sounds of things the event itself has completely sold out, so it should be […]
Want an enjoyable day in an attractive city? Want to learn from your peers? Broaden your horizons? Then why not pop over to Kilkenny for PodCamp Ireland on September 27. The topics and speakers lined up for this year sound like it could be a very enjoyable day.
Last Saturday Creative Camp was held in Kilkenny Castle. I’ve been to some nice venues over the last couple of years (I used to live in a really nice one in a previous life!) and Kilkenny Castle definitely gives them a run for their money. Although the castle is in the middle of Kilkenny once […]
So this weekend is Creative Camp and I’m currently trying to work out who exactly will be going from our offices… I know a few people were talking about it, but I’m still not 100% sure who is definitely going. It looks like there might be two carloads … So we’re basically invading Kilkenny! I’ll […]
Over the past year or so we’ve sponsored most of the BarCamp events throughout Ireland. Whether they’re in Cork or Galway, Dublin or Belfast, here at Blacknight we’ve done our best to get involved and offer our support where possible. A few months ago Kilkenny played host to Podcamp, which was essentially a podcasting celebration […]
PodCamp Ireland was fantastic. The organisers did a fantastic job and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. They even managed to bamboozle me into joining a panel!
A couple of us have headed over to Kilkenny for the day to attend PodCampIreland. If you’re in the area drop into the Ormonde Hotel
Ireland’s first major podcasting event takes place this Saturday in the Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny. The event kicks off at 10am and promises to be an interesting day if the list of expected attendees is anything to go by. As it’s only “over the road” from us I plan on attending, as I’m still feeling guilty […]
Unfortunately I didn’t make it to BarCamp Galway, as we’re doing a major deployment this weekend (remember those photos? Multiply the pile of servers by a factor of 3!) I’m hoping that some of us will make it to Kilkenny for PodCamp instead!
Yes – that is a very big image! But it hopefully caught your attention Ken McGuire has made a series of PodCamp logos and buttons available for people to put on their blog / site. Podcamp is a free event and takes place in Kilkenny city (about 30 minutes from our offices) on September 29th […]
