If you work in the call centre space, you’ve probably heard of Amazon’s cloud contact centre offering Amazon Connect. And if you’re based in Australia you might also have heard that Amazon made Connect available here in early 2017. A diverse range of companies including NAB, Square and Subway (to name a few) have already started migrating parts of their call centre operations to Amazon Connect.
Being configuration driven, open source and very pluggable, kubernetes remains one of the most loved and sought after platforms in the community. I’d like to share some of our own learnings and insights from being in the trenches, delivering value on kubernetes.
While everybody seems to be talking about Kubernetes, they have different reasons for doing so. In this blog I’ll look at the various reasons we have come across for businesses wanting to use Kubernetes, and if and when it makes sense.
In today’s mining industry, fast access to reliable data about the geology of a rock deposit is critical when making operational decisions about field work at a mine. Each mine site can drill between 100 and 1000 metres of drill core per day—generating hundreds of images a week.
It can be quite a task to keep up to date with the number of new products and services Amazon Web Services (AWS) releases. So, if Amazon Connect flew under your radar back in 2017, we’ve got you covered.

Much like the terminology, each day also advances AR and the technology surrounding it, as well as the list of potential applications. Here are a few of those advancements that I’ve recently taken a look at.
Last month, we were invited to attend SBC’s Sports and Event Tech Fast Track event at the Australian Grand Prix. Fast Track events are designed to provide instant feedback to startups wanting to be part of the SBC program from industry experts, potential partners and investors. 10 local Victorian startups were invited to pitch at the event, receive feedback and hear more about SBC’s accelerator program.
In the early part of my programming career, I spent a lot of time working with C and C++. From batch load scheduling systems running on different Unix flavours to hyper-spectral image processing software used by geologists running on Windows NT.
Software Engineers do a great job at covering all aspects of the Test Pyramid, however they’re focused on low level unit tests, rather than full end-to-end tests. As testers, we provide the ‘other perspective’. We anticipate the actions a user might take, actions that others might not be planning for.
Here are some of the startups we met through the Startupbootcamp Energy Accelerator program selection process who are expanding the frontiers in decarbonisation, digitisation and decentralisation.
