Swift Craft is a brand new Swift developers' conference in the UK. In a theater, set in the coastal cliffs of Folkestone overlooking the English Channel, this is an event with more than just UIViews!
With international experts to engage, educate and entertain us, we put the focus back on the craft of writing Swift code.
Our keynote Speakers
We're thrilled to announce our full schedule for the first ever Swift Craft!
We have an amazing line up of some of the community's favourite speakers. We also have some new voices who are on their way to joining those ranks. And content-wise we do, of course, have some cutting edge sessions on visionOS and Spatial Computing, as well as Swift Macros and SwiftData. But we also have plenty of sessions on the fundamentals, and how to craft the best with what we have.
So with three full day workshops, from Daniel Steinberg, Paul Hudson and Jon Reid, six tutorials (half-day workshops), 28 60-minute sessions, 2 keynotes an evening of lightning talks and a dinner with the speakers overlooking the sea as the sun sets, don't miss this opportunity!
On the subject of tickets, we have two rates: Our standard rates are intended for those who are being paid for by their employer as a business expense. But we know we have many indie developers, hobbyists, or others who are paying out of their own pockets. For those we have our special "Indie Developer Rate". Please be honest when selecting the appropriate ticket category so we can keep this event sustainable and accessible for everyone.
We look forward to welcoming you all to our venue by the sea in May!

Swift Craft is hosted at the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone in Kent, UK, overlooking the English Channel. This historic seaside town is also home to the channel tunnel and, as such, has excellent links to the rest of europe. It's also very accessible from London with the UK's (currently) only high speed link, the HS1.
The Leas Cliff Hall is a working theater that also has a dedicated conference suite. Built into the cliffs, and with floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the sea on three sides, the views are spectacular!
The venue is about a 15 minute walk from Folkestone Central station, or ten minutes walk to the bustling town centre. As well as the modern town the old quarter, home to art galleries, curio shops and bohemian cafes and restaurants, extends down to the picturesque harbour. It's no wonder The Times voted it one of the best places to live in 2023.
Although the venue is split across three floors, connected via staircases, it is also fully accessible via elevator.
