What is ShipItCon ?

ShipitCon is a community event for engineers involved in the building and deployment of software.  This is a non-profit event, organised by volunteers and any remaining funds will be donated to a local charity.

Tickets are now on sale! We also offer an unwaged ticket.

Do we really need another conference ?

The fields of Release Management and Build Engineering are becoming increasingly popular as organizations strive to reduce the time taken to deliver new features. While many conferences may touch on topics such as Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Release Management, we will make these topics our focus.

When is ShipItCon ?

ShipItCon has been confirmed for August 25th 2017.

Where is ShipItCon ?

ShipItCon will be held at the amazing Round Room at Mansion House. More details can be found on the “Venue” page.

Why are we doing this ?

We would like to share our experiences of Release and Build Engineering with other engineers in different industries and learn about how they are evolving to deliver better quality software more regularly.  This is a non-profit event. Any funds left over will be given to local charity.


Initially we will work with our sponsors to generate content for the conference. We will have talks from engineers at Demonware, DIGIT Games, Workday and Intercom. While we will source talks primarily from the gaming sector we will ensure that content is balanced and relevant to a wider audience.


If you would like to be involved, suggest a talk, sponsor, promote or just provide moral support, then feel free to follow us @shipitcon on Twitter. Or we can be contacted by email :

We have some promotional flyers available in PDF and JPG formats.  Please feel free to share these within your organisation, Meetup group and with colleagues.  We are relying heavily on word of mouth promotion and the good spirit of the Dublin Tech community to help make ShipItCon a wonderful experience for everyone.
