Announcing the Return of /dev/world and X World!

After a long Covid-induced hiatus, two of Australia’s longest-running conferences for learners, users, developers, and supporters of Apple platforms make a triumphant return to Melbourne on March 30-31!

/dev/world returns in its thirteenth year, and X World returns in its eighteenth year. Both will be co-hosted as a single event in 2023.

The call for participation is open now for both events – please visit the event pages above for more information, and please check back with us soon as we add more information about this exciting event.

Save The Date…

We’re thrilled to confirm that /dev/world and X World will return March 30 —March 31, in Melbourne. We’ll have lots more to say about this soon, but for the moment, be sure to save the date – we can’t wait to see you again soon! Happy Holidays!

AUC Between Worlds Call for Participation

We’re really excited to announce the AUC’s new Between Worlds series, providing a new avenue for community members to share their experience and expertise between and beyond our existing “world” events, which have been on hiatus since early 2020 due to COVID-19. While we do intend to return to face-to-face events when it’s safe to do so, we’ve created Between Worlds as a new way to share experiences with Apple’s platforms in learning contexts.
