Presentation and Competition: Saturday, August 16, from 7pm to 9pm
As this is a licensed venue this is an 18+ event

Step One: Developers' Old School Demoparty
Friday to Saturday 7 'til 7

We start with some old-school demoscene action, gathering together everyone with a project to finish, to cram in last minute code, meet face-to-face with the members of your team, socialise, and, of course, party.
When we say old school, we mean it. You bring the computers we'll bring the LAN gear ... after you’re set up - the party runs 24 hours - from 7pm Friday to 7pm Saturday. The bar closes at 2am, but reopens at 10, so at least you’ll have some time to write code sober, if not well rested. We’ll make sure coffee is on hand, and we’ll spring for some late-night pizza.
Trade jokes, trade secrets, experience and know how. Make friends and squeeze every last drop out of your entries. Old school style.

Step Two: Nullarbor Competition - Come One, Come All!
Saturday 7 'til 9

Anyone with an interest in digital art and seeing what Perth has to offer should come along, have a look and vote for their favourite entry. See the next generation of whiz-kid game developers, touting creations ranging from the slick to the deliriously retro.
Entry is free ... we just ask that you don’t make any sudden moves around the artists ... some of them might not have slept much the night before.

you could try stringing together a bunch of low cost airlines?
bet you can do it for under 500 euro if you give it a year.

.. you can get to china for ~$400 with airberlin.. thats most of the way there.. probably get to australia with tiger for another couple of hundred...
