Attending NICTA TechFest

Posted by on August 14th, 2009 · Work

I was very impressed with some of the fantastic research showcased at NICTA TechFest earlier in the week. Was a great chance to catch up with a number of old colleagues from the research world as well as some familiar faces from Microsoft. I even had the chance to talk geek with James and Liam about how to embed some of our cloud platform evaluaton results into an architecture analysis tool like ePASA as part of the Business Adaptation and Interoperability program of work, so to carry out pre-Cloud migration assessment (more about this later). Besides all the cool science embodied in some of the projects, I think I am most impressed by the enterpreneurial culture the management team at NICTA have created for the next generation of Australian innovators.
I even got to find out that Bob is the one responsible for naming the event TechFest, which is a very familiar term for me having spent some years at Microsoft attending the MS TechFest event.

One observation is that I didn’t see many of the bloggers and twitteratis/digiratis attending, and I fear the word about this great event simply isn’t out there enough? plenty of VCs and government funding body reps were there though!
