Sitting in HK airport now, waiting for my second last flight to get back to Belfast. In a single week I managed to check quite a few travel “bucket list” boxes thanks to Auslug (and Tony Holder from HADSL). From Hong Kong to Sydney, Manly bay, national parks and then to Brisbane, I consider myself very lucky. Tired, but very lucky.
The Auslug conference is about 10,000 miles away from the usual conferences I attend. However, it was the same in many ways. Organised like clockwork, with madness up to the day before, it ran smoothly, with fantastic content and speakers, all paid for by sponsors. People the AUSLUG region are very lucky to have Mat Newman, Karen Hooper and the many other organisers to put this together. They are also very lucky to have sponsors like IBM, HADSL, ISW, Net-effects, Teamstudio, Dr. Notes, Crossware, BCC and more to pay for all of the content. A brilliant event. If they will have me, I will be back.
My last day in Brisbane was spent covering the ethical hacking day in the IBM offices. Again, great crowd and great discussion. Now to get home and get back to work before BLUG gets in gear.
