What to expect

Last year we had more than 200 participants. It was a big day full of different activities, contests and communications.

11 speakers from the different parts of the world shared their knowledge in the Android, iOS, Security and Design areas.

Massive afterparty in bowling where everyone had fun time enjoying the game and conversations.

Everyone got new knowledge and had fun! This year we expect even more of everything...
