Enter the Umbra-Dojo

Learn from the masters, and meet other Umbra-kai

uDuf is the only Umbraco conference in the Southern Hemisphere where each year Umbraco users from across Australasia and the World come together to share knowledge, gain new Umbraco skills and commune with others in the Umbraco community.

It is designed to build a strong and sharing community of developers, project managers, marketing teams and web specialists who use Umbraco. With separate development and business focused content streams, you don’t have to be a coder to get something out of uDuf - we’ve got you all covered!

Through presentations, on-site training and a community Hack Day, you’ll gain insights on technical know-how, creative tips, best practices, and sales strategies. You’ll also get to hear from, and mix with, the brains behind it all as we welcome members of the Umbraco HQ. Discover why Umbraco is the fastest growing .NET CMS in the world, and how it can put a rocket into your business whilst remaining flexible and user friendly.
