The event will be held on Friday 17th August 2018 at UTS Ultimo Campus, level 3 of the Peter Johnson Building (CB06). Doors will open at 8:10am and we'll finish at 5:10pm.
We won't be having a sponsored afterparty this year, unfortunately the cost of doing so exceeds our available funds. We will be heading somewhere after the event though so keep an eye out for the details as to where (you'll just have to buy your own beer).
~$60 (save $10 on early bird!) covers your entry, food and coffee all day and access to the afterparty! Amazing value right!? We are able to keep the ticket price so low thanks to our generous sponsors. DDD Sydney is a non profit event and any excess will be kept as part of a fund for future events and/or donated to charity.
No! While our name implies we are just about devs, our events are aimed at all professionals in the software industry - developers, testers, designers, analysts, managers, etc.
Yes, attendees will receive lunch and snacks throughout the day and we will have a coffee cart operating all day. We usually will also have a couple of small snacks in the showbags.
Yes, attendees will receive showbags with goodies. We typically prioritise the overall experience over mountains of swag though.
Unforunately WiFi won't be available on the day.

We are always looking for volunteers and sometimes looking for organisers! It takes a lot of effort to organise a volunteer-run conference like DDD Sydney. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work with you to figure out the best way to assist.
DDD Sydney will be heavily publicised in the community and we believe offers a unique marketing and recruiting opportunity based on being attended by people that don't normally get to go to conferences. It's also a great chance to give back and support the local software community. We have various levels of sponsorship available with various benefits and price points. We have a sponsorship prospectus that will be provided on request that explains detailed benefits and impact of sponsorship and the difference between the various levels; if you would like a copy please contact us.
Sydney has a very active software community. Consider attending one of the meetups/conferences such as:
