Upcoming Events For Australian Web Developers / Tech Startups

There are quite a few interesting events coming up for tech entrepreneurs, designers and coders, that will help make the cold winter months a little more tolerable. Below are a few of the good ones, based on past experience.

Check it out:

  • Tech23 is a TechCrunch50 style event held in Sydney. The event has 23 startups pitching to a room full of investors/startups/industry people and a demo floor with 25 booths for other participants. The event is on August 19th but applications to be part close on 30 June. Oh – there’s 150K in prizes too, so be sure to get your entry in on time if you’re keen.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.


  • Australian Web Awards – Run by the Perth-based Australian Web Industry Association, the Australian Web Awards (and their predecessor the WA Web Awards) have been a leading light in the recognition of top Australian websites since 2005. There are a bunch of categories to nominate your site, or a site you like, in. Note that entries close on July 8th.


  • Google DevFest AU – This week-long series of mini-conferences on Google technology is happening from June 28th-July 2nd in the Google Sydney office. Every day has a different focus (i.e. Wave, Apps, Chrome, Social and Geo) and Pamela Fox and the Google Developer Relations team have put together a good list of local and international speakers. Registration is free but spaces are limited.
