On October 12 and 13, the WA Department of Industry and Resources and a number of prominent ICT professional organsiations will be holding a conference: ICT WA 2007. You can all the details of the conference at their website: http://www.ictwa.org.au. There will be a wide range of topics covered from Broadband to gaming, so go and check it out. On top of the usual presentations that are usually associated with such conferences, there will be a number of three-hour workshops – one of which will be presented by myself, Bronwen Clune and Richard Giles.
Our topic is “Web 2.0 Application Development – Hints and tips”. All three of us run Perth-based Web 2.0 startups, and know the trials and tribulations that are associated with trying to run the next generation of online applications and social networking sites. The workshop will be fairly informal and, just like any Web 2.0 project will probably take a completely different direction to what we are planning, but currently on the cards is (in no particular order):
- Web 2.0 in business – how can you fit Web 2.0 into existing business infrastructure, both internally and externally
- Web 2.0 development – looking at the nuts and bolts of a Web 2.0 project
- Marketing in the 2.0 space
If you have an interest in starting a Web 2.0 project, or you want to try to convince your boss of the benefits of online collaborative tools, then come along!
