I'm heading back to Canberra in the height of winter for SAGE-AU'2006 in July.
Should be good. This will only be the second SAGE-AU conference I've been to (the last one being the record-breaking one in Hobart). The line-up looks pretty good, and Google is well represented (both in the program, and in attendees) this year.
There's going to be a recruiting gig on the Tuesday evening, so if you're interested in finding out more on what it's like to work in Corp SysOps, and would like to have a drink on Google, block out Tuesday evening in your diary.
There's still a little over a week until the earlybird registrations close.
