Over the past few years I have presented at various functions for the Australian Computer Society (ACS) and have had the opportunity to meet some of the people that keep the ACS running. I received an email last week from Yasas Abeywickrama who is Director for the Young IT Professionals Board for ACS to let me know about the upcoming ACS Young IT Conference in Sydney taking place on September 3rd and 4th this year.
Some notes and details about the conference from Yasas:
“This conference is essential for career growth and development with our theme “The Future of ICT – Lead, Transform, and Succeed. The conference will be held at Dockside, a picturesque conference centre overlooking Darling Harbour. It will feature a conference dinner on the 3rd of September, a trade show running both days, and an important chance to learn more about your ICT future and network with your peers.
This conference will provide young professionals, recent graduates and university students with the techniques, skills and confidence to advance their career in ICT. As a delegate, you will gain valuable insights into the current state of the ICT industry, future directions and trends, essential business skills, and the art of networking, along with valuable opportunities to connect with speakers, sponsors and other participants.
This is the only Conference of its kind, by being dedicated for young ICT professionals, so, I believe its a great opportunity for all those involved in this industry.”
