Microsoft Azure DevCamp

Thiago Almeida from Microsoft is coming down to do an Azure Dev Camp on October 28th - he will also be doing a presentation at the DUG that evening on the shiny new bits in Azure.

More on the contents of the camp & to register visit here: https://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/m/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032596463

Thiago is a very knowledgeable and entertaining presenter so if you haven't had a chance to play with the awesomeness that is Azure I'd encourage you to come along to the camp.

It's also really important that we support these initiatives from Microsoft if we want to see more in the future - so twist some arms and bring a buddy!

Women in IT: Language, Brain and Behaviour

If you couldn't make it to THATCamp (or didn't know about it) this is your chance to hear Jennifer Hay's talk on Language, Brain and Behaviour: "At the New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain and Behaviour, we analyse patterns of language use and change, using large collections of heavily annotated audio-visual recordings. This talk describes some of the audio/visual collections we have built, and describes the software and methods we have developed for efficiently extracting information from large collections of annotated media files."

Many thanks to Jennifer for accepting our invitation.

Christchurch Amateur Radio Club

Monthly meeting is where radio enthusiasts get together to share ideas and meet with fellow hams.

Amateur Radio offers something for everybody, talking to the world or your mate down the road, even helping in an emergency.

Using any communications means available this includes radio, satellite, smart phones and computers, all from the comfort of your home, your car, or walking the dog via a handheld radio.

We offer advanced radio training where you get a world recognised qualification (An Amateur radio licence). Once you have this you can become a part of our Amateur Radio Emergency Communications team. This will have you out on a jetboat, or in a prime spot for rally car action.

You may even help save a life working with the Police Search And Rescue teams in the communications area.

If this sounds like you come along and meet us.

The Valley in Christchurch

Meet awesome people in the tech industry, make friends, and enjoy a meal in a casual, convivial atmosphere.

The best thing about Silicon Valley is the people and the casual conversations that lead to bigger things. These often happen in restaurants. Christchurch (New Zealand) has restaurants and techy people, so why not bring the two together?
