The organizers of the JAOO Australia events is a joint venture between Queensland University of Technology, Bedarra Research labs and Trifork A/S, the organizer of JAOO Denmark for more than a decade.

Since 1996, Trifork has organized JAOO – a conference for software developers, architects and project managers. JAOO is an annual event in Aarhus, Denmark which attracts more than 1000 participants.

Trifork has gone global with conferences in UK, US and Australia keeping the independency of large companies and using the international network of speakers, researchers and trendsetters in the IT industry.

The idea to do JAOO came about when the managers at Trifork were dissatisfied with existing conferences and at the same time wanted to create a forum where we could mingle with the “rock stars” of software development.

JAOO originally stood for “Java and Object-Oriented” and was originally focused on Java-based technologies. Today it has evolved into a more in-depth conference with a wider set of content such as .NET and Ruby-based technologies along with a focus on the softer side of software development: process improvement, patterns, and enterprise architecture.

QCon London is an annual conference organized by Trifork and InfoQ.com launched in March 2007. There is no other event in the UK with similar opportunities for learning, networking, and tracking innovation occuring in the Java, .NET, Ruby, SOA, Agile, Ajax, and architecture communities.

By creating events “for developers, by developers” Trifork has delivered internationally recognized conferences, JAOO and QCon, that are highly regarded by both participants and speakers.
