I have the privilege of helping to organise /dev/world/2015, a conference for those developing for, and on, iOS and OS X. It’s a special privilege /dev/world/2015because our experiences with early /dev/world conferences back in 2008 helped us develop connections in the early iOS developer community, and ultimately start our company.

I therefore think that everyone should go to /dev/world, and there are two ways is one way to get there at no cost. Pretty exciting!

Option 1 is to submit a talk to /dev/world/2015. The deadline is 30 June. We’re welcoming to speakers of all levels of experience, public speaking experience, and any other attribute you might care to name. We’d love to have a talk from you! (submissions closed!)

Option 2 is to be a student at a University in Australia or New Zealand, and then join the AUC (it cost a mere $50). Once you’re a member of the AUC, in addition to getting access to discounted tickets to all our other events, you also get free admission to /dev/world/2015. Yep, totally free.

If you’re not a student, and don’t feel like presenting at /dev/world/2015, you can get a discounted Early Bird ticket until 3 August 2015. If you have a question, feel free to email me: paris AT paris.id.au
