Announcing Ignite Sydney 13

Right now we’re looking for presentation proposals, so please head to the submit page to let us know your ideas for an Ignite talk.

Say no to charity-muggers

There’s a scourge in our fair city at the moment – walk down any street and you’ll be accosted by a faux-cheerful backpacker with a clipboard, asking you to donate to whatever charity they’re being paid to care about. One even interrupted me while I was reading my book in the park! Is nothing sacred to these monsters?

We understand that charities need money to operate, but the chuggers have reached plague proportions (and are doing untold damage to the charities’ brands). We want to support charities which don’t pester people on the street.

So we’ll be donating the profits from ticket sales from Ignite Sydney 13 to worthy charities, who quietly go about their business of helping people.

Please send your suggestions via @IgniteSydney.

Announcing IgniteSydney [Digital]

We’re pleased to announce a brand new Ignite event aimed at digital technology folks.

IgniteSydney [Digital] will have a more technical focus, and is aimed at professionals working in the web, programming or other technology areas.
