About DDD Sydney
DDD Sydney is an inclusive non-profit conference for the Sydney software community. We do this by:
- Making the ticket price as low as possible ($60)
- Running the event on a Saturday
- Allowing anyone to submit about any software industry related topic
- Having a democratically chosen agenda
- Focussing on creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone is welcome
- Having a track specifically for junior developers
DDD standards for Developer! Developer! Developer! and while it's heritage is a developer-focussed conference, DDD Sydney is not just for developers, but for all professionals in the software industry.
DDD Sydney has been held at the following dates:
- 28th May 2016 - 200 attendees
- 15th July 2017 - 230 attendees
- 18 August 2018 - 300 attendees (first time selling out!)
Developer! Developer! Developer! started in 2005 in the United Kingdom as a community conference organised by software developers for software developers. It's since spread all over the UK and Australia.
DDD was set up with a number of key elements in mind, which hold true for all DDD conferences held worldwide:
- It is free / low cost
- It is on a Saturday
- An open submissions process
- A democratically chosen agenda
We have a number of sister events across Australia:
