DDD Melbourne is an inclusive non-profit conference for the Melbourne software community


When and where is it?

The event will be held on Saturday 16th March 2024 at Melbourne Town Hall. Doors will open at 8:00am and we'll finish at 5:30pm.

How much does it cost to attend?

$80 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 Melbourne is a non profit event and any excess will be kept as part of a fund for future events and/or donated to charity.

What if I can't afford to attend? [Financial Assistance]

We’re dedicated to diversity, inclusion and even more so—equal opportunity. We realise that buying a ticket to a conference for many isn’t a trivial expense, but it can be a turning point in someone’s career.

We're committed to bringing in as many individuals who couldn’t attend otherwise as possible. Please, email us at [email protected] and we can work with you to figure out the best way to assist.

Is this just for software developers?

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.

Will refreshments be provided?

Yes, attendees will receive lunch and snacks throughout the day and we will have a coffee cart operating all day.

I want to be involved. Can I help?

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 Melbourne. Shoot us an email at [email protected] and we can work with you to figure out the best way to assist.

How can I contact the organisers?

We can be contacted via email at [email protected] and Twitter at @DDDMelb. See also the other Social Media accounts at the footer of this page.

How can I sponsor DDD Melbourne?

DDD Melbourne 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.

How can I go to this kind of thing more often?
