govdev

Created after govhack. There are talks of New Zealand splitting off from GovHack. I know there are issues, and the name is one of them. GovDev might be a better name. The fact they explain themselves because of the 'hack' in the name is not good.

awssummit17

Attended AWS summit Auckland 2017. It was the first time I had attended a AWS conference. It was very heavy vendor based conference - reminded me of HackAkl.

I arrived late and missed the keynote. I also didn't attend the final session. It was great networking - I got to catch up with a few old faces and meet new ones.

Here is the notes I took during the conference:

awssummit17-data

The 2nd talk I attended. This was a level 100 : driving Business Outcomes with a Modern Data Architecture. I may of been better to attend the AI or Security talk that was on at the current time. It was still enjoyable.

awssummit17-data2

2nd part of the data talk

awssummit17-horse

The final talk I attended of the day. This was Advanced Continuous Delivery on AWS. Wordpress was used as an example.

awssummit17-ibm

IBM did a talk called Developing Your IoT Solutions. It was the only hardware focused talk I attended. One product mentioned was the Intel Commute stick. This is similar to a Raspberry Pi.
