Interested in giving a talk at fenders or submitting to an upcoming conference like DDDPerth?
Come along and brainstorm different presentation topics and put together an abstract to submit.
IMPORTANT: Owing to the Long Weekend in WA on March 2nd, this workshop will be held the weekend before on February 23rd. This means it's more accessible to people who may plan events over the long weekend (like families!). Our ticketing link reflects this change of date.
Reason for being involved in workshop: DDD Perth is passionate about strengthening the Perth software community, improving diversity in our industry and in encouraging and creating chances for anyone to speak and attend conferences and user groups.
About DDD: DDD Perth is an inclusive non-profit event for the Perth software community.
Reason for being involved in workshop: Fenders likes to encourage everyone in the community to further their skills and share what they know (with the community in Perth, and the wider web community), either through running a workshop or giving a presentation.
About Fenders: Fenders is a community for people who love the web! We offer presentations, workshops and social events to learn and get to know people in the Perth web community.
