Community Events

Mechanical Rock firmly believes that a rising tide lifts all ships.

A strong tech community is the backbone for a thriving tech industry and as such we run and support a number of amazing conferences and learning initiatives.

DDD Perth

DDD Perth is Perth's largest community run conference for the tech community. Our goal is to create an approachable event that appeals to the whole community, especially people that don't normally get to attend or speak at conferences. The conference is run on a Saturday, and strives to be inclusive of everyone in the Perth tech community.
