About the conference

Mobius is a conference for mobile apps developers, which takes place in Moscow and St. Petersburg gathering more than 400 participants each time: these are Middle and Senior developers, Teamleads, PMs and architects.

Mobius program contains engineering talks for Android and iOS developers covering next topics:

  • Technologies (Java, Kotlin, Swift, Objective-C, JS Native);
  • Tools (mobile DevOps, containers, GPU-calculations etc);
  • Frameworks (Data binding, RxJava, Firebase, Realm etc);
  • Architectures (MVP, MVVM, VIPER and others).

We never accept "sponsorship" talks so you won't find any "marketing" or "sales" talks.

Besides, our high-quality online-broadcast provides those who can't reach the conference in person with an opportunity to ask speakers any questions.
