Emerging Tech/Software Dev
Michael is the Talent & Development Officer in Allsop, a local software company in Belfast. After not initially getting the grades to go to university, Michael completed a Foundation Degree in Software Engineering at Belfast Met. It was through this that he obtained a 6-month placement at Allsop and has since been there for a couple of years.
Initially starting off in mobile development, he developed a keen interest in engaging in other parts of the software development lifecycle alongside engagement in the IT community. Michael is both a STEM & Bring IT On ambassador and is an advocate for promoting careers in IT.
Outside of his professional life he is an avid musician and is also involved in the local amateur dramatics scene (namely musical theatre!). Michael will be contributing content specifically for Northern Irelands emerging tech talent, sharing his story and learnings.
