Appdevcon is a conference for developers. It has always focused on the most technical aspects of the development process, with tracks specific to Android and iOS developers. Endpointcon is for backend and web development.
For attendees with a specific focus, we have labelled Appdevcon talks blue and Endpointcon talks grey in the schedule.
The agenda of Appdevcon and Endpoint covers all aspects of app – and web development. This will help you learn about the whole process, from connecting and design, via development, to user acquisition to retention. We have five different tracks, each covering a certain aspect of app development.
Our training and tutorial days allow you to dive even deeper into your favourite topics.
Appdevcon & Endpoint Conference offers you talks, tutorials and training sessions. You can read exactly what this means below.
Inspiring presentations related to the most important aspects of the app landscape. These talks allow you to take a deep dive into app development, from connecting and design, via development and QA to user acquisition and retention and everything in between. Join these sessions and get inspired by our industry heavyweights! The talks are held on the conference day, on Friday.
Our half-day tutorials on Thursday provide you with the opportunity to dive even deeper into a topic. They are all hands-on sessions, so bring your laptop!
The training days on Tuesday and Wednesday are in-depth full-day training sessions. There are 3 different topics to choose from.
We encourage using the conference as a team building event. Since we not only cover development but also have topics surrounding app design and QA, you can bring your whole team! To encourage team visits, we have discounts available for larger groups. These can be requested by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, one or two photographers will be present at Appdevcon & Endpoint Conference and there’s a video crew who record sessions and make an aftermovie. Don’t want to be photographed or filmed? Please get an orange ticker at the reception desk and place it visibly on your badge. We will try to avoid taking pictures of people with orange stickers; if they do end up on a picture we will try to blur them.

For a major event like Appdevcon & Endpoint, a large location that is easily accessible for everyone is required. Considering this is the largest and most spacious cinema in Amsterdam, it is a very suitable location.
Historically Appdevcon has always been. held in cinema’s. There is a special atmosphere in a cinema, with big screens and comfy seats, that give Appdevcon it’s own culture.
At Pathé Amsterdam Noord we have the best of both worlds: it’s a cinema like Appdevcon has always used, but it also has a large event lounge which we’ll use for people to mingle and meet.

No. Since Friday 25th of February 2022, showing a proof of vaccination or negative test is no longer necessary. Still we want to be careful, so we recommend wearing a face mask inside in crowded environments. Also, the fist bump is still safer than a handshake.
