What’s on the program for Technorama 2016?

This is the summary version for when someone asks for the elevator pitch.   The full program with times and detail is over here.   Of course there’s lots more happening than is even on the program, including time to catch up, breakout sessions, and a surprise or two.   Morning tea, afternoon tea, plus lunch and dinner Saturday is already included in your registration.  And we are deeply indebted to MediaHub Australia for sponsoring and hosting the Friday night function.
