Tech is thriving in the Manawatū
Meet Tiger, a Chinese national who moved to New Zealand seven years ago to be closer to his mum.
Around the time he moved was when Tiger’s interest in IT increased, and he decided to make a career from it. “No one else in my family has worked in the IT industry, but I loved hacker movies,” he explains.
“That was definitely what got me interested to begin with, and then I got into IT activities called Capture the Flag (CTF) and Bug Bounty, where you test security systems to identify vulnerabilities. These can be competition style (some organisations even put up prize money to ensure their defensive security is sound) or just an activity you can do alone to practice your skills.”
