Podcasts now available

Podcasts of all the main presentations are now available.

Thanks must go to Simon Tweed who has tirelessly processed the audio recordings, cleaned them up, sliced and diced them and done all kinds of post-processing to make them into mp3s. The end result is exceptionally good - much better than the kind of quality I'm used to from conference recordings. They are a joy to listen to.

Each session is a separate mp3 file. You can listen to it live on the site or download it to your mp3 player and listen at your leisure.

The presentation slides are been hosted by Slideshare who provide a nice flash based applet that allowed them to be view directly on this site. As an aside, slideshare uses Amazon S3 for its storage and content hosting - S3 was much discussed during the conference.

A nice feature of slideshare is that the audio tracks can be synchronised with the slide presentations. As time permits we will be doing this for some of the presentations. The first, Querying the Web, has already been done. If you want the best possible viewing experience then click the little green play button beneath the slides, sit back, relax and enjoy.

Oh, and one last thing. The nice people at slideshare have picked my Querying the Web presentation as one of their featured slidecasts, which is really cool.

It's all over

The conference is all over. A big thank you to everyone who participated. It couldn't have happened without you.

What's going to happen next?

We will be adding copies of all the slides, and podcasts of each presentation, as soon as they are available.

We will be continuing to add content to this site as a News/Blog site. Bookmark it and come back regularly.

The conference was a great success so we will be doing something like this again. Watch this space.

Maybe I do need 2007.x

I think I've found a reason for moving to Caché's new shiny 2007.x series. But you'll have to listen to my Lightning Talk to discover what it is! :-)

Confused by IT in the NHS?

Confused by the NPfIT (National Program for Information Technology) and (Connecting for Health) in the NHS (... er ... National Health Service, I think)? Then do come along to the State of play in NHS IT presentation to hear a local view of IT in the NHS. As part of this act, Cherylin Fletcher (Deputy Director of IT at the RMH) will explain what it's all about 'in a nutshell' from the perspective of a specialist hospital. Cherylin will give a brief introduction to IT at the RMH and describe how life at the coalface is affected and otherwise complemented by the National Program.

The RMH has long been recognized as a centre of excellence for healthcare computing - oh yes, such places do exist. After Cherylin has introduced the RMH, I will explain how Caché has been used to create a successful healthcare IT environment and highlight the areas of the technology that we believe make Caché stand out from the crowd.
