This year at DDD Melbourne we will be running a workshop track for those wanting more interactive sessions.

Workshops will be operated on first come first served basis and will require attendees to bring their own equipment and any mentioned pre-reqs. Please note we will probably not have internet access available.

Satisfying Movements - Animating the Web with CSS and JavaScript

John Allsopp @johnallsopp

Web based animation has arrived, and it's time for you to start taking advantage of it to engage and delight your users. And in this session we'll see how. We'll cover CSS Transitions and Animations, and throw some 2D and 3D Transforms into the mix as well, to understand how today's most common, and eye catching, animated UI design patterns can quickly be implemented in all modern browsers and devices.

We'll also look at how you can control animations via JavaScript, respond to animation events, and address the thorny issue of making animations more performant, with less drain on your devices battery.


When and where?
The event will be held on Sat Aug 8th 2015 at Swinburne University Hawthorn Campus with doors opening at 08:30 and ending 17:00 (ish). After the event is completed there will very likely drinks & food at a nearby venue TBC.

How much is the event?
$49. DDD Melbourne is a non profit event and any excess will be kept as part of a fund for future events/donated to charity.

Will refreshments be provided?
Yes, delegates will receive lunch and snacks throughout the day. Sadly we are restricted from running a coffee cart by the university but there are many cafes and coffee shops in the local area & on campus.

Will wireless access be available?
Probably not.

Can I pay by cheque, invoice, American Express, cash, Coinye West?
No - this year all payments will be via EventBrite. It's vastly easier for us as organisers (i.e 3 people) to only accept payments using EventBrite, which currently doesn't allow payments to be made with Amex or Diners or rapper themed bitcoins. Please consider using EventBrite with your own credit card, and claiming it back on expenses. The cost is low, so it should easily fall within your expenses limit!

Can I cancel/give my ticket to someone else?
You are welcome to send someone else in your place. Please do this through the Eventbrite system. For help on how to do this refer to:

When does registration open?
Mon 29th June at midday.

What is the hashtag for DDD Melbourne?
The twitter hashtag will be #dddmelb.

I want to be involved. Can I help?
Thanks but we have enough assistance for running the event now. However we would love to have your session submission.

How can I contact the organizers?

I would like to sponsor DDD Melbourne
Great! DDD Melbourne will be heavily publized in related websites and we believe offers a fantastic marketing opportunity as well as the ability to support the local development community. We have various levels of sponsor ship available and opportunities for logo placement on the website, agenda, delegate slides, speaker tshirts and we are happy to include advertisements in delegate packs. For more information please email

Who is coordinating this event?
DDD Melbourne is coordinated by Oz Dev Inc, a non-profit organisation set up to improve the learnings of the Australia developer community.

I would like to do this kind of thing more often

DDD Melbourne will be held at Swinburne University Hawthorn Campus.

Swinburne's website details the location and contains a map of the campus.


Although parking is available around the university we recommend that delegates travel by train to Glenferie Road station and then walk to the university (about 2 minutes).


The nearest train station is Glenferrie Road and Swinburne university is a 2 minute walk from there.


Tram route 16 stops at Glenferrie Station.


Paid car parking is available around the university & Glenferrie road. There is limited free parking on side streets around Hawthorn.
