Great International Developer Summit comes to Australia

EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT/PROMOTION:  Sydney – June 9th, 2020 – Great International Developer Summit (GIDS), a long-running and internationally-recognised event series aimed at all aspects of software development, is coming to Australia for the first time. Originally planned as two in-person events at the MCEC, Melbourne and ICC, Sydney, the event has morphed into a seven-part series of live virtual conferences, exhibitions and workshops to be held July through December 2020.

The largest such event for software professionals in the Asia-Pacific region, GIDS has been running in India for over a decade and has hosted more than 56,000 developers so far. The virtual event series - GIDS Live 2020 - is Australian-made and produced by Melbourne-based company, Wurreka.

Each GIDS virtual event features a highly structured and curated schedule, packed with inspiration and stimulation for software professionals.

“We assemble the brightest minds in the industry to examine the changing role of software programmers, engineers, developers, managers and architects, explore crucial technologies and cutting-edge techniques, and provide essential professional training,” said GIDS founder and principal, Dilip Thomas. “The series is being expanded to Australia and Singapore because there is so much energy and innovation in the software development space across the region, and we are excited to illuminate that growth.”

The 2020 digital series features seven multi-stream conferences, 150+ international speakers, 250+ breakout sessions and 30+ lively workshops, spread out over the six months from July to December 2020.
