RITTech sponsor the Cloud Bar at PHP Conference 2016

RITTech at PHP Conference 2016

On 18-19 February, RITTech joined over 700 developers at the PHP Conference 2016. Held at The Brewery, London, RITTech sponsored the Cloud Bar where the resident Barista kept the delegates going with freshly brewed coffee and we kept the energy levels up by handing out doughnuts.

We also took along our hand-shaking chevrons and spent some time shaking the hands of technicians to recognise the amazing work they do. I hope everyone attending enjoyed the conference as much as we did. View the gallery on Flickr to see us at the conference and perhaps spot yourself in one of the pictures. Tell us what you thought of the PHP conference and the Cloud Bar #RITTech.

Shake the hand of an IT Technician

Shake the hand of an IT technician

During the launch of RITTech, technicians were recognised by having their hands shaken by all our guests; from IT Directors, CIOs to other technicians, some even shook the hand of a Lord! View the gallery on Flickr. If you manage technicians make them feel valued by shaking their hand and saying thanks or if you’re a technician go and shake the hand of someone else and tell them what you do! Don’t forget to take a picture and tag it using #RITTech.

RITTech is officially launched

Professional Registration for IT Technicians (RITTech) was officially launched on 11 November 2015 by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Based at an iconic venue in London, over 100 people from the IT industry attended the event including guest speakers and technicians. Our guest speakers included Lord Sainsbury, Hugh Milward from Microsoft and Paul Martynenko from IBM, they all spoke about the need for RITTech and helped us to celebrate IT technicians.

Interview with Ian Pearson, Futurologist

On 15 October 2015, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT had the chance to interview Ian Pearson, Futurologist about the role of technicians in IT and what their future might look like.

Technicians participate in the first RITTech Thinkshop

Professional Registration for IT Technicians has been piloted since April 2015 and all the technicians that had registered during that time were invited to join BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT at one of our partner venues IBM and Microsoft for the first ever RITTech Thinkshops.

Thinkshops are an invitation only event and give technicians a chance to explore some new ways of thinking about technology or their future roles.

The events featured two guest speakers: Ian Pearson, Futurologist and inventor of text messaging and James Harkin, journalist on social trends and the impact of IT. After a speech by both, all delegates had an interactive session where they could debate and discuss their views on what had been shared by the guest speakers.
