Earlier this year we conducted a survey on the future of CreateWorld. We’ve learned that February isn’t the preferred time for most respondents, and a focus on professional development opportunities and workshops is likely to result in a more successful event. The next step is to form a new organising committee with fresh ideas and a preparedness to deliver a new CreateWorld, using the survey input as guidance. If you value CreateWorld, and want to help see it continue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know a little about yourself, and how you’d like to help.
/dev/world is back again, running at RMIT University in Melbourne on August 31 and September 1. The call for presenters is now open – why not offer a talk and help us make this the biggest, best /dev/world yet!
Sessions details for some X World sessions have now been posted, with more to come soon, and registrations have opened for the event. Early-bird registrations close June 19 – be sure to register prior to then to obtain the best rate!

X World is also about how members of our own community are dealing with Apple in the enterprise, and will feature workshops, lecture presentations and a number of social events to facilitate networking. It’s a fantastic way to keep up with others who work with and manage systems based on Apple technology, and a great opportunity to make valuable contacts.
