Meetups

Meetups

Local meetups cover a wide range of specialised interests in the local tech industry. Some meet monthly, some are quarterly, some are a little more relaxed (but still worth joining). Meeting with others is a great way to pick up new skills, find help with tricky problems, and meet interesting people. Networking is a great way to find a job, because many are not listed publicly.

All the local meetups we know about are listed below, with their next event and contact details. Most are run by volunteers, so if you have a bit of spare time please step up and offer to help.

In a senior IT role with significant responsibility?

Attendance is free (but pay for your own breakfast). Anyone can come: you do not have to be an ITP member.(This group was called "Senior IT Managers", but its really for anyone who has been around the block a few dozen times, got some deep experience to share, responsible for a few people or a few projects or a decent budget)

Credit Card Fraud Prevention: Jim Boutcher

Palmerston North Software Developers
23 Jun 2022, Thursday 5:30 PM. RSVP

Jim fell in to fraud prevention by accident when he was applying for another job. But he discovered it is fascinating. His main tools are SQL, analysing series of transactions looking for trends and oddness. He says "I'll be talking about fraud and scams more generally, rather than ANZ's approaches, although that will definitely be in there... I'll focus on cards, because that's my most relevant area, but will touch on identity, internet banking and invoices." Please RSVP so we know how much pizza to buy.We usually walk to Brew Union around 6:30-7pm for the social half of the meeting.
