One-day conference for 200 mobile technology enthusiasts




Register

GDG Wellington, together with Cocoaheads Wellington is proud to bring you Mobile Refresh '17' - Wellington August 25th, 2017. Our one-day conference aims to bring together 200 mobile technology enthusiasts who are interested in debating the latest developments announced at Google I/O and WWDC.

Mobile Refresh will provide content for designers, developers, testers, or just about anyone passionate about mobile development. We took your feedback on board, so this year the conference will feature a predefined stream of talks running alongside several unconference-style discussions.

While we are very privileged to receive support from Google, all attendees should expect discussions that cover both iOS and Android.

We look forward to spending a day of learning and sharing with all of you. Until then, you can reach us via Twitter or Slack.

Sessions

We will update the list of sessions once the call for papers has closed. The un-conference talks will be updated on the site on the day of the event.

We provide three parallel tracks. There will be a mix of structured and planned talks, and un-conference style sessions, meaning that you, the attendees, decide the topics.
