Overview

Join us for the return of YOW! December Online, a 2 day conference bringing software experts to you.

Over these 2 days, you'll learn from thought leaders, architects and developers as you connect with like-minded people to share skills, insights, and lessons from the comfort of your laptop, be it at home or at work.

YOW! speakers are chosen based on their expertise; they provide excellent, technically rich content with no sales pitches, just lots of case studies and stories from the trenches.

Serious software professionals and IT leaders from all across the organisation will benefit from attending. Whether you’re a developer, architect, product owner, team lead, coach, or manager, don’t miss this learning opportunity. Our speakers have a wealth of experience they’re eager to share with you.

YOW! December 2021 will be an online conference hosted on the Hopin platform.

At Skills Matter, we’ve chosen to see the events of the past year as a challenge to make our content and community more inclusive and accessible to all. Beyond the COVID‑19 pandemic, we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers.

We are excited to welcome our community from Australia and around the world to this year’s YOW! December Online.

We hope to see you there!
