Community bytes vol. 2
It’s been a busy time, with our friendly neighbourhood NetHui team busy with rolling out the virtual red carpet for our 2020 event.
Meanwhile, InternetNZ has been working with other organisations, who share the same goals and vision as us, to navigate the best and safest way to get events up and running with COVID-19 on our minds.
Exploring the Trust and Identity Research
Digital Identity NZ recently completed its Trust and Identity research for 2020, sponsored by Digital Council and InternetNZ. An overview of this research was presented at TechWeek.
On 30 September, they hosted an online action-oriented kōrero to explore the full research report and discuss how to progress some of the challenges and opportunities it highlights. We look forward to seeing what comes out of this, and expect to see discussions continue when we all come together again at NetHui.
The Broadband Compare Awards
16 October 2020
As an essential service, the entire telecoms sector has been working hard to keep New Zealand connected by seeking innovative solutions and putting their customers first.
This annual event is a chance to recognise excellence and achievement across the broadband sector, as well as allowing us to look to the future and where the industry goes next.
19-25 October 2020
Kohacon is an annual conference close to the hearts of librarians and software developers worldwide—and such, it has been held in different locations across the globe since it first took place in 2010.
With COVID-19 changing everything to do with events and travel, this year it will be a hybrid online and in person event, free to join, and InternetNZ is providing support for sign language translators.
Government Digital Transformation Summit
The fourth Annual Government Digital Transformation Summit NZ brings together digital transformation leaders from across all levels of public services, looking at not only what’s been done so far but what the next steps are.
COVID-19 has changed the situation for many people, and public services had to adapt to new needs and demands over this last year, especially. What the next steps are, and what this means for these services, are just a couple of things that will be covered.
VUWWIT (Victoria University’s Women in Tech) has been busy making WITCon 2020 happen and we are excited to be sponsoring again.
This event is designed to bring students and industry together to talk tech and social topics around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and there will be something for everyone to get involved with. This is an opportunity to meet people in the industry, discuss challenges faced and find ways to overcome them.
