About this event

We're delighted to welcome Paul Biggar, Founder and CTO of Dark, and Founder and previous CEO of CircleCI. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from an Irish software engineer whose deep technical expertise led to roles at the likes of Mozilla, and to the launch of CircleCI, a service that makes it easier for developers to automate their processes for building, testing and deploying their code. CircleCI has become a household name for developers worldwide, and and saw enormous growth during Paul's time as CEO.

A previous graduate of the exclusive YCombinator accelerator, Paul will join us to discuss his experiences of starting and scaling companies in Silicon Valley, and to talk about his new project, Dark.
