The event was held on Saturday 4th August 2018 at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Doors opened at 8:10am and we finished at 5:10pm followed by the afterparty at @Liberty Cafe & Bar.
$50 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 Perth is a non profit event and any excess will be kept as part of a fund for future events and/or donated to charity.
If you can't afford the ticket price then we have Sponsored (Financial Assistance) tickets available. DDD Perth is donating 10 such tickets and we also have an option for people within the community to donate further tickets. The only requirement for eligibility is that you can't afford the ticket; you can access the Financial Assistance tickets by entering the promotional code of
- Already attended a conference in the past? That's ok.
- Already received a sponsored ticket in the past? Still ok.
- Don't have much (or any) experience with the technology featured at DDD Perth? That’s ok, too.
- Don't want to take money away from someone else? Really, it’s ok, everyone says that!
- Don't feel like you deserve this? That’s also ok: you do.
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, there will be a bunch of swag on offer on the day both from our swag table as well as with the various sponsors that will have booths. We have decided not to offer showbags this year as they often end up resulting in a lot of waste; this way attendees can choose the swag they want. We will have a small number of bags on offer if you need, but it may also be prudent to bring your own bag.
PCEC has free wifi for all attendees limited to 512Kb download speed that needs to be renewed every hour.
Yes! We will be providing childcare at this year’s conference. It will be available for the duration of the main conference (not including the afterparty) and will cost $50. For this year we are limiting it to children 3 years and above, and to a maximum of 20 places. You will be required to provide food for your child for the day. If you would like to book your child in then please purchase an additional ‘Childcare’ ticket when purchasing your ticket.
The conference is now sold out.
Payments can be made with credit card using Eventbrite via our tickets page when registrations are open. Companies that want to buy bulk tickets (> 5) can contact us to pay by invoice (EFT or credit card).
You are welcome to send someone else in your place. Please do this through Eventbrite.
Media personnel authorised by DDD Perth will be in attendance. These media personnel will respect the photo policy as defined in the Code of Conduct.
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 Perth. Shoot us an email at [email protected] and we can work with you to figure out the best way to assist.
DDD Perth 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.
