UIKonf 2017

About UIKonf

UIKonf is Berlin's independent conference for serious iOS developers. Taking place from May 14th to 17th 2017 in Kosmos in Berlin it is a great place to meet and connect with experienced developers from all over Europe.

UIKonf features inspiring speakers giving talks on cutting edge topics in iOS development, mobile design and business.

But UIKonf is not only about gathering knowledge. We want to facilitate new connections and friends amongst our great community by providing an inclusive setting where all participants feel safe and welcome. In order to achieve that, we expect all to abide by our Code of Conduct.

To help people connect, we framed UIKonf with social events which provide an informal environment for meeting like-minded people.
