Please note that schedule is subject to change. TBA is "to be advised", as we are still waiting on confirmation of some of the speakers and workshops. More details will be provided closer to the event. We still have a couple of free speaking slots, so if you are interested then please complete the Call for Speakers form

Friday 16 June 2017

As a preconference social event, we are meeting at Interface, 101 Chalmers Street Sydney (normal Sydney JUG venue) at 6pm for beer and Pizza. This will be an opportunity to meet some of the conference attendees and speakers. We'll finish up around 9pm, so you can still get plenty of sleep and be ready for the conference.

Venue Agincourt hotel
Our main social event will be right after the Saturday conference. We'll be going to the Agincourt hotel for drinks and networking (1 min walk on the corner of Harris St and George St). There will be a hefty bar tab, and it will be your challenge to help us use it up. There is delicious food available (at your own cost), or plenty of nearby venues to grab a quick bite to eat then join us back at the Agincourt hotel for more dirnks. We are starting a bit later on Sunday to give you time to recover.
