Australia's longest-running conference for macOS and iOS developers and designers, /dev/world/2017, returns to Melbourne for its tenth year! We've been working for years to build a community that also welcomes tinkerers, artists and scientists. Software isn't just about making money with in-app purchases—come and see a wider world. /dev/world/2017 workshops run on Monday, 28 August 2017, followed by the conference on Tuesday, 29 August 2017, and Wednesday, 30 August 2017.


Monday workshops will run morning to 6PM, on Tuesday, the conference will run from 9AM to 6PM, followed by dinner until late, and on Wednesday the conference will run 10AM to 5:30PM. Sessions, keynotes, and workshops all subject to change. More being added regularly.
