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.

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.
