I recently posted a blog entry saying that I had become a member of the IIA Web Development group and now we have had our first meeting I have more news for you all.
The other members of the team are:
Eamon Leonard, echolibre (Chair)
John MacDonald, Pigsback.com
David Scanlon, Enterprise Ireland
David Rook, Realex Payments
Darragh Curran, IGOPeople.com
Paul Doherty, Software Design
Martha Rotter, Microsoft
Stewart Curry, X Communications
Richard Bowden, RB Consulting
Ken Stanley, Magenta Three
Joe Drumgoole, PutPlace.com
I think that the IIA have amassed a very talented little group of people. I have to admit I was apprehensive about the group, I really didn’t feel like it was going to be something I could help with but I was very happy to be proved wrong. I think that with the amount of talent in the group we should be able to deliver some great work which should benefit both businesses and developers in Ireland.
I think the most encouraging thing so far has been the fact that I feel I can achieve things with this working group that I’m struggling to achieve with other groups I’m involved in.
We brainstormed and came up with a lot of ideas but we want to solicit feedback from the people we aim to help so the IIA have posted a poll for us. We hope to receive a lot of information through this poll which will allow us to deliver what businesses and developers in Ireland require.

And last but not least:
If you have any questions about the group or our intentions please ask!
