YOW! is a vendor-independent, not for profit software development community founded in in Australia and now encompassing Singapore, Hong Kong and New Zealand.

The aim of YOW! is to bring together internationally recognised speakers and local developers to encourage excellence and innovation in local development communities. We cover the emerging technologies and best practices in the software industry regardless of technological platform or language, and without commercial hype. Since launching in 2008 over 30,000 people have attended YOW! events and we are now the largest independent event organiser in the region for software development.

Join our community of passionate APAC software developers - advance your skills through learning from world class speakers and networking with peers.
