SPECIAL OFFER: Become a YOW! Online Member

Enjoy the high quality talks you know and love from YOW!
Delivered to you wherever you are

Welcome to YOW! Online, our new virtual community.

Since the world class speakers we’ve been bringing to Australia are (mostly) from abroad, the only way to bring them to you right now is online. YOW! Online not only brings them to you, it provides an enhanced experience with live interaction. All those questions you’d like to ask and can’t in a packed face to face forum, you can now ask in our virtual community setting.

You know us for the depth, breadth, and experience of our experts in areas as diverse as Architecture and DevOps, Agile, Technical Leadership, Machine Learning and AI, Cloud, Security, and Languages. If you’re interested in it, we try to bring it to you. We have over 75 experts waiting to bring you their latest thinking (even our favourite Rocket Scientist!). 
All have insights you can apply back at the office from technical leadership to best practices in big data, from cloud to agile. What will you learn next? What solutions have you discovered on your way to solving some other problem? Take a mental breather and join us at YOW! Online.

Get all the members-only content for just $25 per month. Get a discount off all our online conferences and professional development workshops. Better yet purchase the annual membership (the best deal!) for all the online conferences, the members-only content and an additional discount on all workshops for just $275 for a limited time.  
Since we can’t meet in person right now, we’d like to connect you with our global experts digitally. We’re looking for ways to serve our users (and survive the pandemic) just like everyone else. We’ll continue to curate talks and speakers, looking for what’s hot now, what can help you do your job better now as well as grow into your next job. 

YOW! Online will have monthly members-only content in the form of live featured speakers with YOW! 90 Minutes, plus YOW!Tube and YOW! Tooling Up. Members will want to allocate 90 minutes to 2 hours every month to take advantage of these. 

How many times has the speaker said something and you wanted to ask a question right then and there?

How many times have you wished there was more time to get your questions answered? How many times were you too late or too shy to state your question? And, the real killer, you thought of a question an hour later after the session is over and the speaker is long gone. Imagine a live session with the speaker on your favourite device where they take the time to answer your questions in live chat as well as consider questions submitted later. You will get a summary of everything in a followup post of the Q&A within a few days of the session. You’ll also have the benefit of the opinions and input from the other attendees in an ongoing chat. Connect on the topic you care about with peers sharing their experiences. The talk, the Q&A, the chat and the followup post will live in your membership area so you can refer back to it at your convenience even If you can’t attend live.

The online conferences will be announced and ticketed as per usual in the newsletter and on the website with Online members holding an Annual membership getting free access to all conferences and a special discount to the workshops.

Please join us on this journey to create a rich experience with your peers and the wonderful speakers you’ve come to know and enjoy over the years–and meet some new ones!

But don't take our word...

"

At YOW we are able to share our technical experience and thought leadership to the software community in Australia. We also send our consultants to hear from YOW’s expert speakers and to network with the developer community.
Karen Dumville
Global Head of Marketing – ThoughtWorks
YOW delivers us a return on our investment in so many ways – accessing difficult to get in-person education from some of the world’s leading technologists; inspiration to try new approaches; an opportunity to have low-key recruitment conversations with an array of technologists; as well as some less quantitative benefits of meeting the tribe in the safest, most collegial context possible.

If people are at YOW, it means they care about their professional development, their peers, and building a global community of technologists; are curious about the latest technology advances; and are chasing up-to-the-minute learning. What an atmosphere results from this cocktail! We would not miss it
for the world.
