Many thanks to IBM and Mellanox for supporting this event in Sydney.

IBM representatives will be at the meeting to cover various topics, and open dialogue between IBM and customers will be encouraged. As is the culture of the group, no marketing or sales pitches!

The agenda is currently being finalised, but included in the day will be technical presentations by Mellanox and we hope to potentially include a Meet the Devs event in the afternoon.

There will be some networking opportunities to meet with your Australian colleagues.
