Another amazing event this year with a record crowd of 700 attending the Canterbury Tech Summit in Christchurch!

It’s a fantastic gathering of the Christchurch tech community meeting up with old faces & new.

I think what inspires me the most is the gathering of a common ethic to work together building great IT companies & products in software & hardware. 

It makes me proud of such a gathering of talented people and getting pumped on inspirational speakers really gets the motivational juices flowing reminding me of the grit, determination & resilience whether you’re in a start-up, software house, technology company or corporate striving to be the best you can.

 

Here's a great video re-cap of this awesome IT conference in Christchurch that has become an annual showpiece of the South Island IT community
