International news from IFIP
ITP has been profiling some of the international bodies doing some great things for the IT profession, and explaining how New Zealand's tech community can engage. This month we have more news from IFIP, the international federation of national tech professional bodies like ITP, and have asked New Zealand's IFIP representative, Elizabeth Eastwood, to give us an update.
Recently IFIP has been busy on several fronts:
- Raising it's profile in an effort to become more relevant, and
- Attracting additional ICT organisations into the fold, and
- Improving the website.
To whet your appetite here are a couple of items…
