About UIKonf

UIKonf is Berlin's independent conference for serious iOS developers. Taking place from May 26th to 29th 2019 in RADIALSYSTEM V 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.

Tickets

Ticket prices include VAT (MwSt.), free drinks, lunch on the conference days and the UIKonf party. See our refunds policy if you are not sure about your plans in May.

We are also offering free tickets to members of underrepresented groups in tech. This includes but isn’t limited to: women, people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, and disabled people and generally people who are unable to attend without financial assistance. To apply for a diversity ticket, fill out this form.

If you want to support diversity at UIKonf, you can do so when booking your ticket. Simply select the additional "Scholarship Sponsor" package which provides one ticket for our diversity ticket applicants.

Speakers

For UIKonf 2019 we decided to present you a special edition with an amazing all female speaker line up. We therefore decided to pause the CfP for this year and invite all speakers personally. However, if you would like to speak or suggest someone, please reach out to Engin.

As a speaker, your travel expenses will be reimbursed and you will be our guests at our selected Hotel in Berlin. Of course, we will also reimburse you for your ticket if you already have purchased one.

Keepsafe’s mission is to make privacy and security simple. We believe that everyone should have the same control of privacy in their digital life as they do in their physical life. We’re working on a family of products to make it easy for people to defend their private lives. With over 50 million users on our existing products—we’re just getting started. The iOS team at Keepsafe in Berlin is focused on building new apps to augment existing Photo Vault and AppLock products.
