About X World

X World is our conference for people who manage or administer Mac OS X & iOS installations in either a support, lab manager, network technician or systems administration role. X World is a public event – anyone who works in the space is welcome to attend.

X World 2017 will be held at the University of Technology Sydney (Broadway City Campus) on June 29-30, 2017If sufficient presentation and workshop offers are received, we plan to expand the event to Wednesday June 28.

The conference includes workshops and plenary sessions, and there are plenty of opportunities for delegates to meet and interact, share experiences, and learn about projects they are working on. Networking and meeting other people who share similar interests is a major part of X World and one of the main reasons people return every year.

Call For Presenters Now Open

The call for presenters is now open, and closes Monday April 24, 2017, at 5pm Sydney time. Offers can be made by completing the submission form.

Request a Session

Not everyone can present, but you might be able to help shape the conference anyway. If there’s a particular topic you’d like to see covered, make a suggestion on the requests board. We’ll put the word out to see if we can interest any speakers in taking up your request.

Who should attend?

There are no prerequisites for attending X World other than a good working knowledge of OS X (exposure to 10.11/10.12 recommended) or iOS and a basic understanding of UNIX concepts such as file structures, directories and basic networking. Different streams during the event will cater for both technical staff new to OS X & iOS as well as UNIX gurus and Mac veterans.
