Fixel Inc., the global digital service provider based in Sri Lanka who specialize in Mobile app development attended the conference for the 1st time this year.
Held in Singapore, iOS Conf SG 2019 is the biggest iOS developer conference in South East Asia that offers an incredible opportunity for the iOS developers of the region to learn, network, collaborate and grow together. Organized by the iOS Dev Scout, the iOS developer meetup group in Singapore in collaboration with of CU Society, the conference has immensely contributed to the development of the iOS developer community of the region over the years. Started in 2015 iOS Conf SG is been held annually in Singapore with the participation of iOS experts around the world.
In 2019, the conference was held for the 4th time at Matrix at Biopolis, Singapore from 17th to 19th January 2019, offering attendees a full three-day global educational experience on iOS app development. With over 250+ attendees from all over the world, iOS Conf SG 2019 was comprised of a two-day conference session and one day workshop delivering participants a well-balanced experience on conceptual and practical knowledge.
With a team of five developers of Fixel family, we attended the conference with the desire to widen our knowledge and gain experience on iOS and iOS app development. We are very pleased with the experience and entire event which was full of insightful, informative and thought-provoking talks and useful programs. It was indeed nothing less than what we expected, offering us not just opportunities to expand our knowledge on iOS app development — but to network and collaborate with fellow iOS developers in the region too which otherwise we won’t get the chance to.
The mix of talks that can keep your brain buzzing for months
The speaker line up throughout the two days of the conference was strong and compelling. Steven Hepting (iOS Engineer, Airbnb), Paul Hudson (Author of Hacking with Swift) and Daniel Steinberg (Dim Sum Thinking) who is the author of the bestselling book ‘A Swift Kickstart and Developing iOS 7 Apps for iPad and iPhone’ were some of the well-known faces of the iOS world who joined the conference to share their knowledge and experience.
The conference provided incredible opportunities to meet and interact with the industry experts and influencers enabling developers in this part of the world to learn from expert developers from around the world. With a workshop, talks, panels, quizzes and after parties and more the event was a well-rounded experience with a real mix of talks that can keep your brain buzzing for months afterwards. The panel discussion on `Ingredients of great applications` was thought-provoking and revelatory while the quiz competition was interesting and gave opportunities for everyone to engage, test their knowledge and get a little bit competitive for a fun. Naveen Enushan from Fixel won the 3rd place of the quiz competition taking Fixel’s recognition at the conference to the next level, which all of us in Fixel family is proud of.
It was indeed an educational and entertaining experience for us, to meet new people, shake hands and builds relationships for future collaboration opportunities and for friendships of the same tribe. It should also be praised the amazing workshop organized as it was a very handy addition to the conference.
