Why is this the right conference to come to?
Our values are content, community and affordability.
Content is easy to show - just look at this year’s draft programme. We have workshops by noted experts, along with a range of tickets on every aspect of iOS development, that will help grow your iOS expertise.
Affordability is pretty easy to see too - where some conferences are £599 or £799 plus VAT, plus find your own expensive accommodation, you can have three days of iOSDevUK goodness with 3 nights accommodation for £399 all in.
Community is much more intangible. It comes out in the new speakers we have given chances year after year, who have grown into regular speakers. It comes out in the lightning talk sessions where everyone can have their say. It comes out in sharing flats of 8 en suite rooms with other attendees, in shared meals, and time to meet other developers, and have fun together. Maybe the best way to show it is to share some feedback from previous attendees. When asked what they liked best about iOSDevUK8, as well as the expected answers highlighting specific talks, here are some of the answers we got highlighting the value of the community:
“Building great relationships with the community”
