    As a developer/designer from Belfast, Northern Ireland, I think it will hit us locally in a big way. With the only part of the UK with a land border with the EU i suspect we will find it hard over the long run to perform. Having spent a year working in Germany and for european startups, I am glad I did at the time, i just fear that my children will not get the freedom to do that as easily as I did.

    Working now for a US based company who acquired the UK company i was working for in the TV industry, I am looking forward to seeing how this pans out.

      Interesting, it will certainly be something new to see how the US based company reacts - whether they might try to move the UK-base over to the US, or even if they'd relocate your Belfast office to an EU base. Depends on how the negotiations go I guess. Best of luck!
