2013 – Speakers

It is early days yet, but we are pleased to announce the first of our main speakers who will be on-site in Dublin.

Martin Dougiamas
Founder of Moodle

Martin is the founder and lead developer of Moodle. He lives in Perth, Western Australia. He has been working on Internet stuff for 23 years, and in particular, most of his experience has been in education at a tertiary level. He was webmaster of a large university since the web started, and manager of a WebCT system for some years after that. He has postgraduate degrees in Computer Science and Education plus most of a PhD entitled “The use of Open Source software to support a social constructionist epistemology of teaching and learning within Internet-based communities of reflective inquiry” (Moodle didn’t let him finish it!)

His main mission in life now is Moodle. He started it in 1999 and since then the project has been growing exponentially in terms of size and activity. Now he works from Moodle HQ each day with many different people from around the world on a ever-widening variety of things.
