Next month the most awesome OSDC is happening, and this year it's right nearby: Griffith Uni Gold Coast Campus.
At around $300, full OSDC conference tickets cost less than most single IT training days, and provide so much more! Approx 50 awesome speakers, lots of like-minded similarly awesome people to exchange ideas with, tutorials to really learn something new in-depth with experts right there, great food including the ever fabulous conference dinner.
There are tutorials on Inkscape, OpenStack, Docker, Node.js and Web Security, various workshops, and session topics from setting up monitoring in your own home, bare bones ARM hacking, robotics, to 3D printing, and language-related talks on Python, PHP, Perl, Go, Haskell, Node/JS, Ruby/Rails, Arduino, some opensource-in-business topics, and so much more!
What new magic will you learn during these days?
Basically, you can't afford to not be there!
