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.


UIKonf hosts a diverse selection of inspiring speakers. We select and invite about the half of our speakers. The other half will be selected by our community through our anonymous call for proposals. Our Call for Proposals is now closed. We will announce selected speakers and their talks on a rollling basis.

Social Events

A central part of UIKonf are the social events on the Sunday before the conference. Not only do you get to enjoy Berlin for a day but they also give you a first opportunity to get to know other participants of the conference in a fun atmosphere.

While the social events are completely free for you, we encourage you to donate to a charity. The details will be available soon.
