  • “Last year was MultiCore World’s inaugural meeting and for a first conference it was excellent. Nicolas assembled a top-notch group of speakers from around the world, including speakers from Intel, ARM and Cisco as well as cutting-edge New Zealand and Australian organizations like CSIRO and Weta Digital. The setting in Wellington gave plenty of time for the speakers and attendees to interact on a much lengthier and informal basis than one finds at a typical conference.” Stephan Friedl – DE CiscoUSA (Speaker 2012)
