After 7 years the UKDCIG wont be organising any more events but has been subsumed into the iMasons global events.
The format (10 x 10 lightening presentations) will follow workshops in the morning.
Founding Infrastructure Masons
Infrastructure Masons (IM) was established to provide infrastructure executives and technical professionals an independent forum to connect, grow and give back. IM was founded by Dean Nelson, a long time Infrastructure executive and industry contributor. Dean believes that by bringing these professionals together they can focus their combined experience and expertise to advance the industry, develop their fellow masons, and empower business and personal use of the infrastructure to better the economy, the environment, and society. iMasons was announced to the world on April 2, 2016, through Dean’s LinkedIN post, Are You A Mason?
Since it’s formation in 2016, Infrastructure Masons membership, events, and industry participation have quickly accelerated. The infographic to the right highlights some of our key metrics and accomplishments to date. We hope you’ll consider joining us in our ongoing mission to unite the builders of the digital age.
In August 2017, the Infrastructure Masons Board and Advisory Council developed a two year plan to advance the industry, grow membership, increase awareness of the industry, develop education programs, and give back to the industry. The results of this discussion will guide the future of iMasons strategic planning.
Infrastructure Masons will be holding another workshop following high demand.
The challenge that we face on a global basis as dependencies on the digital age escalate – facts / scale illustrations / predictions.
The risks of chaotic collapse as evidenced by various recent examples of DC failures – inconvenience today / probably deaths tomorrow / hopefully never societal disruption and anarchy etc.
The importance of personal accountability of all involved to ensure we are not the people ‘at the helm’ when disaster strikes – through collaboration, pushing the collective industry expertise, stepping up to make our industry the best it can possibly be and ‘doing our bit’
What are the industry factors that can be focused upon to avoid these risks / What would success on a global / regional / national basis look like?
