Apologies for not posting my blogs earlier.

I’d like to write about the event we had on the 26th and 27th April in Sydney.

Sydney saw our best-attended event so far with 29 registered attendees and speakers.

We had kind sponsorship from Mellanox and IBM Australia and we were hosted in the IBM offices in North Sydney, wonderfully close to good coffee and food and the train!

Please mark it in your calendar!

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.
