A Buzzy CloudCamp Canberra and our new NICTA CEO!

Posted by on October 14th, 2010 · Work

Wow – it was a great cloudcamp in Canberra – big thanks to Dave and Ben for making this happen again, and NICTA a proud venue sponsor.

Good to see some familiar faces, and even more fantastic to see some great innovation in cloud computing from right here in Australia – the youthful enthusiasm and passion for technology is clearly evident from some of our local IaaS innovators – Joseph and Sheng from OrionVM – great to see the results from years of academic research making its way into your product through the form of OpenNebula, and fantastic SaaS innovation from Connect2Field, your lightning talk definitely captured the imagination of the predominantly Government enterprise audience in Canberra – on how to better enable next gen field workforce!  

I feel heartened to see the next generation innovators coming through with so much energy and passion, and hopeful that we are creating the right incubation environment through our education system/University environments and research labs such as NICTA for enabling and empowering a fresh and vibrant software industry in Australia.

With the appointment of our new NICTA CEO – Professor Hugh Durrant-Whyte, I am very excited about further strengthening our industry engagement, and bringing through the next generation of innovators for Australia!
