This post wraps up the third CMG Australia Meetup held on the 2nd of April 2014. Another action packed, tech talk filled and networking oriented CMG Australia Meetup comes to a close. We thank all of our members and partners (commercial, academic & research) for their support in making the meetup a success.
It was great catching up with our members again and have a chin wag on things that matter to us SPE (Systems Performance Engineering) professionals. From an Executive Committee Standpoint, we enjoyed participating in the session as much as organizing it. In-fact at the CMG Australia executive committee we are already looking forward to the next one. This post at CMG Australia presents some of the highlights of the CMG Australia Meetup held on the 2nd of April 2014 and also serves as the minutes of the meeting.
The CMG Australia Meetup held on the 2nd of April 2014 was attended by 29 CMGites and was held at Level 1, Campari House located in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. You can find details of the event at the CMG Australia Meetup website – Link.
Highlights – The highlight of the CMG Australia Meetup on the 2nd of April was a talk by our guest speaker from NICTA, Liming Zhu. Liming Zhu is a Principal Researcher & Research Leader, Software Systems Research Group, NICTA. To learn more about the research that NICTA is doing in the SPE (Systems Performance Engineering) space please visit – Link.
CMG members gathered at Campari House and networked over a beer until the guest speaker was ready. The session kicked off at 18000 Hrs AEST. Kevin Ross (VP, CMG Australia) welcomed the participants and introduced the speaker, Liming Zhu from NICTA. Kevin then spoke about the planned collaboration with Swinburne which included quarterly workshops and the upcoming Industry day. Kevin requested those interested in conducting or assisting with the workshops to contact the Committee. Volunteers were sought to assist with the planning of the industry day.
As part of the executive committee at CMG Australia we look forward to working with you on building a strong professional organization focused on the interest of its members including the society we all live in. Our vision for CMG Australia is to be an organization that helps its members stay relevant, promoting the concepts of SPE across the SDLC, while fostering innovation and entrepreneurship through its various professional forums.
Upcoming CMG Australia Meetup – We are working with our partners on the logistics for the next CMG Australia Meetup. Details on the event and speakers to follow. We look forward to seeing you at the next CMG Australia Meetup on the 4th of June 2014. For more details please visit:
