This year our call for papers response was phenomenal, so instead of a panel discussion, we just had to have 4 lighting talks. Our lighting talk speakers are just as important to us as all our other speakers, squeezing their wicked Magento knowledge into just 15 minutes!
So to give you a taster, we asked Tadhg a few short questions –
1. What are you most proud of?
Excluding my wife and children, I am most proud of my upbringing. I grew up on a small farm in the middle of nowhere in Ireland. Looking back now it was a wonderful childhood. I am proud to be a ‘giver’ and not a ‘taker’.
2. Who do you most admire in your career?
Right now I most admire the movie director Ken Loach. Okay my career is not in the movies but you have to admire this man. His movies bring to life the awful truths of both modern society and historical past. #WeAreAllDanielBlake 🙂
3. Why did you want to get involved in Mage Titans UK 2016?
Mage Titans 2015 was my first exposure to a real Magento developer conference. I came away inspired. It also dawned on me that maybe, just maybe I would like to do a talk. So one year later here I am! I hope that my story will inspire others to do the same.
4. Is there anything else that you are eager to tell us about your talk?
Okay I know Data Migration is not the most exciting of topics… so I’ve tried to make it a little more fun. After all, our venue is the Comedy Store! Is there any Dutch in the audience? I can’t give too much away but what can go wrong in 15 minutes!
Many thanks to Tadhg for stopping to answer these questions, we’re really excited to hear your talk.
Take it easy Titans.
