*POSTPONED* Technical Deep Dive

  • 30 Mar 2020
  • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Mazenod College

After deliberation and discussion we have decided to postpone the VINE Technical Deep Dive Day planned for March 30 at Mazenod College. COVID-19 strikes again! 

We would particularly like to acknowledge those who have contributed to getting this day together and hope they can share their wisdom later in the year at a rescheduled event:

  • Ian Burrows, MLC
  • Jonathan Beard, Tintern
  • Josh Lyon, Donvale Christian College
  • Faizul Zakaria, Haileybury

VINE would also like to acknowledge the support of our sponsors for the contributions they have made, in particular Microsoft, Somerville and Murdoch Webster Technology Group who put their hand up to be meeting sponsors for this event.

The VINE Committee would also like to acknowledge Ashley Voigt of Mazenod College who has driven this meeting from the outset. Thanks Ash – you’re awesome!

This day is aimed at operational team members, system administrators and other people who love to talk nerd!
