Recently I was asked to present to the Canterbury branch of the New Zealand Computer Society on cloud computing. Icelandic volcanoes resulted in me partnering with Abhinav Keswani, fellow Christchurch industry insider, to present to the gathering. My presentation was a general overview, along with a criticism of the all-too-prevalent cloudwash I’m seeing in the marketplace at the moment. (Inline presentation below)


After my presentation Abi took up the reigns – giving a great overview of stuff he’s been involved with “at the coalface”

The presentations worked well together and the attendees all seemed to get something out of the evening – feel free to pass on both of these presentations to those to whom it’d be interesting.
