X World is our conference for people who manage or administer macOS & iOS installations in support, lab manager, network technician, systems administration and related roles. X World is a public event – anyone who works in the space is welcome to attend.
X World 2018 will be back for it’s 16th year in 2018, and will held at the University of Technology Sydney (Broadway City Campus) on June 27-29.
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.

We’re delighted to announce our first international guest this year is Ed Marczak! Ed has spent much of his life thinking about people, processes, and technology. His experience spans several companies and roles, including developer, sysadmin, manager, and project manager. An early advocate of Apple products, Ed has written two books focusing on Mac management, co-founded MacTech Conference, and is a familiar face at Apple-related events all over the world.
Ed spends his non-compute cycles with his family, and improving his music and photography skills.

There are no prerequisites for attending X World other than a good working knowledge of macOS (exposure to 10.12/10.13 recommended) or iOS and a basic understanding of UNIX concepts such as file structures, directories and basic networking.
