Talking Technical

In this room each event will present two or three speakers who want to offer their views
on a technology and why they like it. We will then open up the floor for further
discussion with the audience who are welcome to ask questions and offer their own
content or viewpoints

expect from everyone involved and why this is an experiment

11.00 – 11.45 – Technology Futures
Presenters discuss the evolution of technology , where is it leading us and what IT
roles will that leave. From wearable tech to big data and analytics, what do you see
driving business and personal technical decisions in the coming years

Work and Life

This room acts as informal discussions and roundtables around a variety of subjects
that effect us all. How do we run out work days, our lives, our downtime and our
interests. How do we get trained, plan work, track work and connect with each other.
Each event will be an open discussion with a moderator working through a series of
prepared questions for the room to open up discussion. The moderators here are not
necessarily subject matter experts and the audience is expected to participate.

  1. Unfortunately I can not make this event due to other commitments. There are many sessions I am very interested in. Are any of the sessions going to be recorded, and if so, will they be made available. Have fun everyone going!

  2. We certainly hope to record some of the sessions in the Technical Track, we’ll publish more on that after the event, assuming everything goes OK!
