Even though my head still hurt, I couldn't miss this event and the fact I was personally invited by Amit Gupta, IDC New Zealand General Manager.
I already met some familiar faces around the show floor and I am now attending the sessions. shame I missed Hon. David Cunliffe, Minister of Communications & IT addressing the audience this morning.
interesting thing is the number of Open Source sessions today and tomorrow.
Ihave attended "What is the Changing Economic, Community, Environment and Cultural Landscape in NZ and how do we Maximise ‘Being Digital’ to Address the Challenges?" by Janet Mazenier, Digital Strategy Programme Manager, Ministry of Economic Development. Janet has just announced the Digital Future 2.0 Summit, later in November 2007, where leaders will be discussing the national digital strategy.
Next I am planning to attend "Reaping the Strategic Benefits of Open Source in Government" by Murali Sagi, Director of Information Systems & Corporate Services, Judicial Commision NSW. Murali was responsible for the delivery of a decision support system developed with a combination of Linux, Apache, postgresql and PHP. It hosts about 450,000 legal documents and over 500,000 legal statistics.
