TechTalk explores the current IT skills shortage from an industry and education solution perspective.

What's it all about?

TechTalk New Zealand and Techtorium NZIIT are happy to be hosting the 5th New Zealand TechTalk event in collaboration with Techweek19.

On this occasion, industry experts will be discussing the current IT skills shortage, and how we can mitigate this from industry expectations based on feedback from Tertiary providers and key stakeholders who can help produce quality graduates for the IT industry. 

MC by Colart Miles, as well as the three speakers, we will be hosting a range of group activities and workshop demonstrations from leading industry experts. 

TechTalk provides a platform for creating new networks, collaborating and participating to improve the lives of others through technology. 

The objective of the New Zealand TechTalk series is to share deep and practical knowledge through technical presentations. This will be achieved by creating an education-oriented platform (i.e. TechTalk) to gather IT industry stakeholders to facilitate, support and exchange bright and original ideas.
