Up-skilling Malaysian IT professionals

It is common knowledge that companies both MNCs and locals are having difficulties in hiring good and knowledgeable IT professionals. Having knowledgeable IT workforce is the key to move up the value chain for the Malaysian IT industry.

The push by our Prime Minister, Dato' Sri Najib Razak, to move Malaysia up the value chain through innovation, knowledge and creativity has inspired a group of geeks to play a part in this ambitious goal by creating a platform for IT professionals to up-skill their knowledge. TechInsights is led by a group of Microsoft MVPs (Most Valuable Professional, an award honoured to IT experts) with a mind to introduce the latest technology. It is meant for hard-cored IT professionals wishing to dive deep into technologies. TechInsights follows strictly to these principles:

  • Created by geeks for geeks (No Marketing Talk in the event)
  • Neutral in technology
  • The sharing of advance level technologies

We have lined up new technologies such as SharePoint 2010, Visual Studio 2010, SQL Server 2008 R2, Silverlight 4, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, System Center Service Manager 2010 and many more. Expect loads of in-depth and hands-on demonstrations by MVPs and industry experts locally and abroad. This is also a great networking opportunity for technology lovers to congregate and exchange their knowledge.

If you need a competitive advantage at your workplace, this is the event that will equip you with cutting-edge insights and expertise that will not only make life easier for you, but everyone else at your workplace.

TechInsights has successfully organized one of the biggest IT event in Penang last year in collaboration with SCOPE (Software Consortium of Penang). We attracted 200 paying audience with speakers from the region and the United States. Due to the overwhelming success, we added Techinsights KL and with expanded audience capacity.

Tech Insights 2010 is an event created by techies for techies. An experience to rediscover the uber-geek within you.
