X World 2016 Call for Presenters

X World is our annual training event for OS X and iOS system administrators and support staff, and will be held at UTS, Sydney. This year the event will run July 7-8.

We are now calling for presenters who wish to offer sessions and workshops at this year’s event. If you have a background in the installation, configuration, deployment, or on-going administration of OS X based systems, or experience in iOS deployment, management and app development, or if you work in related areas, we’d really like to hear from you. Presenters receive free registration to X World, and qualify for subsidised flights and/or accommodation.

This call for presenters closed Monday May 2, 2016, at 5pm Sydney time, but late submissions will still be considered. Offers can be made by completing the submission form.

More information, including ticket pricing, final dates, and the event program details will be posted shortly after the CFP closes.

CreateWorld Reboot

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 createworld AT auc.edu.au and let us know a little about yourself, and how you’d like to help.

X World Registrations Open

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!  If you’re interested in presenting, late submissions may still be considered if submitted via our CFP form.

We have a great X World program this year, and have once again partnered with JAMF Software to bring you the latest information on OS X and iOS deployment.  We hope to see you there!
