Hi, my name is Macdara Butler. I live in Dublin, Ireland with my wife Emma.
I keep this blog to share my experiences and hopefully help other people around the world by sharing useful information.
My interests are varied and I love sport, off-beat comedy, food and drink, history and of course technology!
I am a hurler, I play hurling with St. Brigid’s Castleknock Hurling team and for fun I also like to play 5-a-side football. I love football too and I’m a life long fan of Arsenal FC since Michael Thomas got that goal in 1989!
I love raw off-beat comedies like The Savage Eye, Catastrophe, Peep Show and Cardinal Burns, my claim to fame is appearing as an extra in The Savage Eye, Season 4 as a student Garda. History is my guilty pleasure and I’m a big fan of Patrick Geoghegan’s show on NewsTalk “Talking History“.
I’m also a foodie and I love to cook, eat out, try out different wines and craft beers and generally enjoy the finer things in life.
At work I am a Product Manager in the software industry. I’m really passionate about team-building and collaboration in the work environment and I love when everybody works together…and the business starts to run like a well oiled machine.
Every day in work I try to embody Lean Agile culture and values through the spirit of Kaizen – the desire for continuous improvement.
I really want everybody in the tech industry to have the opportunity to work in a high-performing and collaborative environment, so that’s my mission now for the next 40 years to make that happen!
