AppSec Day is Australia’s only conference dedicated entirely to application security. Aimed at providing a welcoming environment for developers, testers, devops engineers and security professionals alike. To improve their application security knowledge, skills and to network with other like minded professionals. With a day filled with talks, hands on workshops and panel sessions to learn all things application security.
In 2016 we have sold 150 tickets to software developers and testers, devops engineers, students and security professionals, interested in learning about application security. In 2017 we have expanded our venue and doubled our ticket sales to local and interstate IT professionals. This year, we are expecting similar growth with over 450 delegates anticipated. To accommodate this growth the event will be hosted at the RMIT University, a world-class conference venue with award winning venue spaces.

Game Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP) (October 23th-24th) is Australia’s premier game development conference, focusing specifically on skills development, addressing industry trends and international business matching.
GCAP delivers thought-provoking, creative and innovative sessions covering programming, art, design, business and more, from leaders in the local and international game development industry. GCAP has a focus on mid-career professionals, with medium-to-advanced level content geared towards upskilling attendees and helping them become the best developers they can be.
The 2018 theme for GCAP, ‘The Walls We’ve Built Ourselves,’ looks to the future of the Australian game development sector, its successes and failures, over the past seven years and the sectors positioning in a changing global market. We’ve built our walls to understand our own boundaries, to provide protection while we hone our craft and from that place produce content enjoyed by the world. In contrast, walls can also constrain innovation, discourage creative risk, and blind us to what’s happening on the other side.
But walls are not permanent. They can be moved or torn down. That is what we want to explore in GCAP 2018.
All GCAP tickets except Student tickets include entrance to the Tuesday networking party and the Australian Game Developer Awards.
More information about GCAP can be found on our website, http://www.gcap.com.au
