Registrations open for Canterbury Software Summit

The summit will take place at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram on the 2nd of October.

Registrations are open for the annual Canterbury Software Summit 2014, the largest technology event in the South Island, which will be held on Thursday, 2nd October.

The summit is the flagship event of the Canterbury Software Cluster, a non-profit professional association run by a voluntary committee of 200 members and dedicated to advancing software innovation, commercialisation and export.

This year the summit will feature keynotes from ex-Microsoft DirectX ‘renegade’ Alex St John, Quid co-founder Sean Gourley, and Telogis CTO Ralph Mason, besides a line-up of well-known speakers and two master classes.

Geoff Brash, chair of the Canterbury Software Cluster, said, “Our ‘Full Throttle’ theme for the event reflects the momentum in Canterbury’s technology sector. ICT strategies have featured prominently in the election campaigns of all parties, plus the government has made some big commitments to support Christchurch’s new Innovation Precinct.

“The precinct will house a new postgraduate computer school, local offices for Callaghan Innovation and NZTE, and anchor tenant Vodafone’s new South Island Headquarters and ‘Xone incubator’. Canterbury is a great place for hi-tech – whether you’re just starting up or already going full throttle. I invite everyone to come along to the 2014 Summit and find out why.”

The summit will take place at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram. It has also been extended from a half day to a full day event. Session topics range from staying innovative and agile through fast growth to parallel processing, user experience design, security, and tackling the IT talent shortage.

According to the organisers, more than 230 delegates have already registered for the conference.
