SwiftConf is a small conference for great Developers. Started as ObjCGN in 2012 and since the release of Swift in 2014 focussed on Swift and the whole ecosystem around it. Join our community for two days of sessions, networking and collaboration.The main focus is on Swift, iOS, macOS, Objective-C, development, creativity and social topics.
Est. 2012, SwiftConf has proven to be a great conference for Cocoa Developers. It means we’re onto iOS, but also Mac, and now, obviously Watch. The original name, ObjCGN (short for “Objective-Cologne) was obviously about Objective-C, but since 2014 we are totally focussed on Swift. As a matter of fact, since that year has seen the Open Sourcing of Swift, and some interesting ideas like Swift on the Server or Swift for Android, we’re now more open to explore new universe, although we surely still are this bunch of Apple nerds.
SwiftConf takes place in Cologne (“Köln” in German, pronounced /kəˈloʊn/), Germanys fourth largest city and well known for its carnival, beer culture and the famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom). Its central location in the heart of Europe makes it easy to reach from any European location, either via plane, train or by car.
Cologne is a beautiful city to visit, and there are lots of other interesting places in the area that are perfect for some sightseeing before or after the conference.
Since 2016 the conference and all its activities happen directly at the Seven Principles (7P) offices in beautiful Cologne Kalk, not far away from Koelnmesse (Cologne Trade Fair), Lanxess Arena and Köln Arcaden shopping center.
