YOW! Conferences are for software developers who want to advance their skills through learning from world class speakers and networking with their peers. YOW! is not aligned with any technology, practice, methodology or vendor.  The conference focus is on excellent, technically rich content rather than sales or product pitches. Our invited speakers are all practitioners with many years of experience in the industry, chosen from a network of over 400 authors and experts by an international program committee. Many of the languages, practices and ideas that you use as a developer have been authored and created by these speakers. Common topics for our signature conferences include Microservices, Architecture & Design, Functional Programming, Big Data & Analytics, Web & UX, DevOps, Performance & Security, Cloud, Languages, Engineering, Agile & Lean.

With around 40 unbiased and technically rich talks over 2 days, there will be at least 4 per day which are relevant to some aspect of your work. Attending a YOW! Conference is a great way to broaden your areas of expertise as more companies now expect their senior people to understand multiple technologies and practices. Every year we have people who say they are only going to talks on specific subjects and are then amazed to find out that by stepping out of their comfort zone, they learned something useful that they didn’t know about before coming to the conference.

In addition to the signature events, YOW! produces conferences on specialised topics:

and the CTO Summits for technical leaders in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

YOW! also runs intensive Workshops and Nights throughout the year to showcase the current and future direction in software development and delivery, and offers an Online Membership option.

All YOW! events are great for networking. The top developers and companies are looking for people to work with them on projects and you will be able to talk to speakers and developers from other companies about your specific interests. Top developers come to YOW! events to network and stay sharp. Instead of having to fly to Europe or the USA, let the international world class experience come to you. Join over 30,000 IT professionals who have attended YOW! events across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.
