This week the Hursley Technical Exchange (HTX) is running on site. Hursley runs a lot of external events for customers, schools and universities, but this is one for the IBMers working on site. There’s all kinds of talks and activities run by IBM people and also external speakers, such as Simon Singh, Robert Llewellyn and the people behind Hawkeye. It’s something similar to Google’s Tech Talk series, but all squashed into a week.
Lots of Hursley bloggers are contributing to the event. This morning Roo and I ran an innovating with Lego session, then Ian talked about Situational Apps and Richard Brown presented on WebSphere Process Server. Later in the week Roo is also giving a Web 2.0 pitch.
It looks a pretty good lineup for the week. I was somewhat disappointed to find that the Hawkeye people hadn’t set up any cricket nets in the house as I fancied having my bowling action analysed, but it was pointed out that maybe having people smash cricket balls around isn’t the best thing to do in a listed building.
