BASSETERRE, St. Kitts–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) celebrated its 53rd
commencement ceremony at the Watsco Center in Coral Gables, Florida, on
May 18, 2019. RUSVM graduated more than 400 students, bringing the total
number of RUSVM alumni to more than 5,000.

The keynote address was delivered by Amanda Boag, MA, VETMB, DipECVECC,
DipACVECC, DipACVIM, FHEA, MRCVS, president of the Royal College of
Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). As a female leader in an industry that is
outpacing the growth of women in medical and other STEM fields, Dr. Boag
shared her experience as a veterinary leader and provided advice for
RUSVM graduates.

According to the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges
(AAVMC), of which RUSVM is a member institution, there has been an 11.5%
increase in female enrollment in veterinary colleges since 20001.

“Times have definitely changed for the better but we should not assume
the change is complete. Hidden barriers, some of them within women
ourselves, do exist. So believe in yourselves and your value,” Dr. Boag
said to graduates.

Dr. Boag is a Board-certified veterinarian in both Internal Medicine as
well as in Emergency and Critical Care. She serves as clinical director
at Vets Now in the U.K., where she is responsible for clinical and

veterinary medicine, to take advantage of RUSVM’s vast alumni network
and to lead the veterinary profession into the future.

“As we promote and demonstrate the connection between human, animal and
environmental health, also known as One Health, our graduates will be
key members of a global conversation. I am proud of our students and
look forward to the impact they will have in both veterinary and human
medicine,” Callanan said.

RUSVM’s graduating class includes students from 45 states in the U.S.,
Argentina, Australia, Canada, Japan, Singapore and South Korea.

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Software release expert will present a keynote session at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

If you search online, you will find that continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous delivery are like vectors that have the same direction, but different magnitude. Their goal is the same: make our software development and release process faster and more robust.

The key difference between the three is in the scope of automation applied. What gets people who are new to the field confused is that they are not mutually exclusive, but include each other, like Russian dolls.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you can hear more about the subject in a special keynote which will be presented by Matt Beaney, Service Transition at AutoTrader UK.

Matt has overseen Service Transition at AutoTrader UK for over 10 years, driving continual improvement of the release success rate from 85% to 99.8% and increasing the release rate from <600 to 15,000 per year. In Prague, he will tell you all about CD is right for you and your company.

Leading law expert and tech compliance advisor to moderate the AI-related panel discussion at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

The future is almost here and there are more and more talks about AI being a key part of our daily life. But, it seems we are not quite there yet as most of the services that are available are not the real independent AI which is feared by many doomsday preachers.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, we have put together an artificial intelligence-related panel discussion which will highlight some of the most recent topics that are discussed in the sphere and can benefit many in the upcoming period.

The panel discussion will be joined by Andjela Todorovic (Software Engineering Intern at Cubic Corporation), Jiří Třečák (CEO at Supernova), Aleksander Kijek (Chief Product Officer at Nethone) and last but not least, Vojtech Chloupek (Partner at Bird & Bird).

The futuristic thinking panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Robert Skalina, Senior Advisor at WH Partners.
