Non-member mailing list
Welcome to BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT,Isle of Man Section website. Our section was created on the 7th of July 2004 as an international section of the BCS as per other jurisdictions such as Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland and Hong Kong.
Our Section holds either a professional or social event each month from September to June. There may also be impromptu social events in July and August. Our events are normally open to non-members.
Our forthcoming events are published on our web site and if you happen to be on the Isle of Man at a time coinciding with an open event please join us. If you are a BCS member and regular visitor to the island or would like to register with the Section anyway, then please update your details held by the BCS.
As highlighted at the October event, Ana Brandusescu is based at the European Commission Centre de Technologie Agricole and she will explain some leading edge AgTech projects in emerging markets, such as: participatory 3D modelling; insights from some of the most effective open source apps such as frontlineSMS; and the untapped power of the Google visualisation toolset.
She was previously based in Washington DC at the World Wide Web Foundation on a project funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, where she helped the World Bank draft a new international standard on public sector procurement to reflect the shift to Freedom of Information legislation. The standard was released on 17th November 2014: OCDS 2014
