App Builders 2022

Labs Edition

May 16-17 2022

Why a Labs Edition?

Back to routine

After a conference ends, it is very common to get back to the office, fire up the code editor, dabble with some new things you heard about and then just forget about it after a week.

Improve Collaboration

We usually collaborate only with our co-workers or sometimes with Open Source contributors, but most of our time as developers is spent alone with our code.

Better Learning

Everyone has their own learning process, however listening to a conference talk is often not the best way to truly understand a subject.

More than just coffee breaks

Exchanging ideas with other attendees is an important part of a conference, for some people is the main reason to go to a conference, but the chances to do this are often limited to breaks and the after-party.

A blend of App Builders and The Swift Alps

Blending the chalet experience of The Swift Alps and welcoming all mobile developers like App Builders.

Travel & Accommodation

🚂 Train

From northern Europe and the northern and western parts of Switzerland the Lago Maggiore region can be reached by using the international railway lines Basel-Milano or Zurich-Milano, with the direct trains Intercity and EuroCity. If there are no direct connections available, it is necessary to change trains at Bellinzona for direction Locarno.

From Domodossola, following the international Simplon-line, the narrow gauge train "Centovalli" offers a particularly romantic journey. With the railway line from Milano-Centrale via Como there are connections to the Ticino from every part of Mediterranean Europe with the Intercity trains as well as the fast train EuroCity.

For train fares and timetables, we recommend you to check the Swiss Federal Railways's website or use their mobile app (iOS & Android).

Did you know? The Swiss Federal Railways also developed have an accessible app available for both iOS & Android.
