About Software Art Thou?

Quality entertaining talks

Zendesk’s Software Art Thou has been bringing quality entertaining talks to the Melbourne software community since 2016. Held quarterly, each night is focused on one presenter and their ideas. Topics range from knitting (and its similarities to computing) to lessons from Engineering history, and everything in between. Guests can expect to gain a different perspective on the world of software while enjoying professionally catered drinks and canapés.

Sharing ideas within the Melbourne software community

Software Art Thou? is devoted to sharing ideas within the Melbourne software community. While similar events target specific disciplines, Software Art Thou? was born from a desire to bring the widely varied software community together through a series of really good talks, in one convenient and central event space. Drawing on a diverse range of experiences, networks and expertise, our speakers are renown for their unique insights and compelling presentations.

Inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do, and this free event welcomes people from all backgrounds and cultures who seek a deeper understanding of the world.
