Next, there will be a talk on using Markdown, along with some simple tools and techniques, to generate beautiful documentation for our projects.

In this talk, Ray will give a simple hands-on demonstration for getting started building conversational interfaces through Alexa with the Amazon skills toolkit.

The city, county and region offers a young, well educated workforce and is easily accessible for international visitors. Waterford’s quality of life for employees is exceptional as it blends elements of rich cultural heritage with a new and vibrant lifestyle – with new additions such as the Greenway further showcasing the county to not only locals, but visitors from all over Ireland and overseas.
