Join us at the capstone event for Tech Week in the Manawatū. Lots of things happening:
- Purnesh Tripathi from Amazon Web Services will give 3 five minute case studies: how Singapore transformed government services by putting the needs of their citizens first; how a company scaled from 50-500 people by with intelligent document processing; and how they can help local startups scale.
- A small team from AWS will be there (hopefully with swag to give away) to answer your questions and see how they can help you do what you do
- All the meetups in the region get together at this time of year to meet everyone else, cross pollinate ideas, and more.
- Employment corner: Looking for work? Bring a few copies of a one-page CV to hand out to potential employers. Looking for workers? ManawaTech member companies can bring a banner / flyers etc for a stand. We will have a corner of the room where people will come to talk to you.
- Internship corner: Looking for an internship? Bring your one-page CV. High school Gateway students, teachers or careers advisors are also welcome.
- Professional Development Corner: UCOL will be there with a stand to answer your questions about study, career development, internships, workhub and more. IT Professionals will have a stand to connect you to their tools and services
- VRC Computers will bring a "dream gaming rig" for you to drool over
- Robyn Young HR will come to answer your questions about recruiting and retaining tech staff, and the salary survey they recently completed.
- There will be food... the official speaky bit will be short. This is our way of brining the tech community together to help form those all-important connections that make stuff work so much better.
Thanks to AWS for their sponsorship and practical support.
