Hi Everyone!

I'm Lyndon - Member of the Compose :: Melbourne Committee.

You might remember me from this meetup, and from the last two years when I helped run Compose :: Melbourne. We had a great time and are very proud of bringing the conference to Melbourne. Connecting amazing speakers with our passionate audience was an absolute pleasure and this year we're at it again!

This time around you can expect a very exciting conference with a stunning lineup of speakers and a fresh experience for the day-two unconference. Join us at RMIT University in the heart of Melbourne.

Our speaker lineup features Julie Moronuki - author of Haskell Programming from First Principles - delivering the keynote "Unreasonable Effectiveness of Metaphor". This sets the tone for the day - a series of presentations that aim to cross the boundaries between programming, math, art, language, and music.

See our lineup here:

Day two is once-again an unconference, however after listening to your feedback we are adding more structure and coordination to the day. From Wikipedia -

An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. The term "unconference" has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as fees, sponsored presentations, and top-down organization.

Think of it as a full day of workshops, spontaneous talks, hallway-track and collective hacking. We have four scheduled workshops throughout the day, but expect many more activities to emerge. This is also an opportunity for you to lead impromptu sessions on any functional subject.

We're making Compose :: Melbourne inclusive and beginner friendly, which means that we have structured the line-up to include many talks that can be enjoyed by beginners and experts alike. We're committed to promote diversity at the event and this includes providing free tickets towards that effect. Just get in touch and we will provide a ticket for you.

Get in touch via [masked].
