Two week warning

According to the clever counter on our website, we’re only two weeks away from Technorama 2018 in Melbourne.  If you or any of your people haven’t registered yet, now’s the time to do it.  Plenty of space available, and there are still rooms at the inn.  By the way, the housing link works for you.  The more rooms we take at the Vibe, the cheaper it might get (and it’s already cheap).   But to get the Technorama Rate use our link, and not one of the other hotel websites.

If you’re thinking that it might be too late to get an affordable flight:  we have a suggestion.  Contact our travel partner HelloWorld Ascot Vale on 03-9370-2811, and mention that you are calling about Technorama.

Learn to solder and build things

At this year’s Education Day on 18 May, we’re going to teach some smart people how to be smarter.  Attendees at TR18 Ed Day will learn how to solder, wire up a cable, build an LED audio meter, and then… build your own multimeter, an absolutely essential piece of gear.   All this for only $50, which includes all training materials and hardware on the day.   Register now.  (Note: Education Day is a separate event to Technorama)

Special announcement!
Change of opening night location

Technorama’s opening night will now be hosted at 3ZZZ, the largest Ethnic Community Station in Australia.  And we’re very pleased to welcome our sponsor for the evening:  AVC Group.

The welcome function starts at 1830 on Friday night 18 May, and is already included as part of your Technorama registration.  We’ll provide enough food to keep you from feeling hungry, and you can catch up with your mates over a drink.

3ZZZ is at 309 Albert Street, Brunswick.  That’s  a five minute walk from both Brunswick Station and tram stop 19 on Sydney Road.   And for the seriously energetic, it’s a pleasant 20 minute amble from The Vibe or the Maltese Club.

Our sponsor AVC Group is well known to many Community Broadcasters in Australia and New Zealand, as representatives for a wide range of hardware and software products including  Axia, Wideorbit, Linear Acoustic, Omnia and Telos and Yellowtec.

Congratulations and welcome to Bursary awardees

Technorama is an inclusive group, and we think it’s a shame that there aren’t more young people and women involved with media technology.  This year thanks to the CBF we were able to offer a special attendance option for some technologists who are outside the traditional gender, age and inclusiveness demographic for a room of technologists, and who might otherwise have been able to come to Technorama.  We’d like to congratulate our inaugural awardees.

You don’t need to be a techno-nerd to attend Technorama or be a member:  everyone is welcome.
