When and where is it?
The event will be held on Saturday 3rd October 2020 at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Doors will open at 8:00am and we'll finish at 6:00pm followed by the afterparty at General Assembly.
How much does it cost to attend?
$79 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.
That's why we've launched our Opportunity Program. We're committed to bringing in as many individuals who couldn’t attend otherwise as possible.
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.
What about swag?
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 may have a small number of bags on offer if you need, but it may also be prudent to bring your own bag.
Will there be wifi?
MCEC has free wifi for all attendees limited to 512Kb download speed that needs to be renewed every hour.
Will childcare be available?
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) free of charge! For this year we are limiting it to children 3 years and above, and to a maximum of 20 places on a first come first serve basis. You will be required to provide food for your child for the day.
When does registration open?
Due to the popularity of last years event, we are running 2 separate ticket waves to give everyone an opportunity to obtain a ticket.
Wave 1 registration opens on Wednesday 6th May 2020 at 12:00pm.
Wave 2 registration opens on Monday 8th June 2020 at 3:00pm.
The ticket price will stay at $79 for each wave.
Can I pay by cheque, invoice, cash, Coinye West?
Payments can be made with credit card using Ti.to via our tickets page when registrations are open. Companies that want to buy bulk tickets (> 10) can contact our sponsorship team to discuss options .
Can I cancel/give my ticket to someone else?
You are welcome to send someone else in your place. Please do this through Ti.to.

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?
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?
Who are the organisers?
DDD Melbourne is organised by Oz Dev Inc. A non-profit organisation set up to create inclusive events for the VIC software community.
