Jan 2021 Irish Virtual Tech Events Listings

โ„น๏ธ NOTE: This post is updated regularly

You can find archives of previous virtual events at: 2020: March to June | July | August | September | October | November | December

I'll keep track of virtual tech events here to a point where this live blog is not needed anymore, I'll stop, and will just have them in our monthly Coding Grace newsletter. (Also helps me so I don't double up on the work maintaining the lists on a blog and newsletter).

Let me know either via contact@codinggrace.com or @CodingGrace if you want to include:-

Here's some events and conferences who have adapted to having their events virtually (I'll try and keep this post updated).

๐Ÿ†• Best practices for accessibility for virtual events"As everyone knows, most of our open source events have transformed from in-person to digital this year.

We hope this will help you organize your digital events!"
