About /dev/world

Australia’s longest-running conference for macOS and iOS developers and designers, /dev/world/2018, returns to Melbourne on 26-28 August 2018! Celebrating our eleventh year, we’re still working to build an inclusive community of enthusiasts; from creatives to scientists, from hobbyists to die-hards, /dev/world/2018 is about coming together to share and learn.

The conference sessions cover a wide range of topics including the iOS SDK, OS X frameworks, Apple and third-party development tools, and open source software. The conference also provides developers with an opportunity to meet and network with others working in the same space.

/dev/world is open to the public and will be held at the RMIT Swanston Academic Building, 80/445 Swanston St, Melbourne.

Stay tuned for more details about the conference, including talks, special guests, and registration details.
