DDD Melbourne is an inclusive non-profit conference for the software community. Our goal is to create an approachable event that appeals to the whole community, especially people who usually don’t have the opportunity to attend, or speak at, conferences. We do this by:
Furthermore, DDD Melbourne aims to both create opportunities for underrepresented minorities, juniors and first-time speakers to present as well as influence the wider software industry to encourage such opportunities more broadly.
What does DDD stand for?
DDD Melbourne started out its life as part of the Developer! Developer! Developer! series of events and while our heritage is as a developer-focussed conference, DDD Melbourne is not just for developers, but for all professionals in the software industry. These days we don't expand DDD - it's not an acronym for us anymore, but if people insist then we might say Designer, Developer and Data Scientist, or is it DevOps, Data architect, distributed tester?

We welcome presentations from any topic relevant to the software industry; if voters think your presentation is interesting, it's in!
Before submitting a presentation please consider the following:
We have 2 presentation sizes you can choose from: 20 minutes and 45 minutes.
Presentations are not a sales presentation although you are welcome to have a slide or two about yourself and your company.
You will probably have internet access, but you should have a backup plan in case it's unavailable.
We will open voting on November 8th 2023. If your presentation gets voted in and you agree to present, then this is a serious commitment.
You are welcome to submit more than one presentation, if you have multiple presentations that are voted in then we will either ask you to select one or select the highest voted talk to maximise the number of speaking opportunities we offer.
If your talk is selected, training will be available to help you be the best speaker you can be.
Questions? Fire off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get right back to you :)
Unfortunately, we can't cover flights and accommodation for speakers, but if that's a limitation that stops you from speaking then please reach out to us to discuss.
