Inspiring talks

Catch up with the latest trends in frontend development and get inspired by our amazing talks. Uphill conference offers the right mix between current and upcoming technologies, always lending a peek into the future.

Greatest speakers

Uphill conference hosts world class speakers from famous companies like Netflix, Google and Microsoft. Our international speakers are experts in their fields and are also experienced speakers. Only the best is good enough for you.

Meet and connect

We believe having great talks is not enough. Meet our speakers in person and connect with other members of the community. We want to build communities and this is your chance to become a part!

Beautiful venue

Enjoy the cable car ride to the top of beautiful Mount Gurten where the conference takes place. The Gurten Pavillon is a modern glass building with an amazing view over the city of Bern and only a 5 min walk away from a great panorama of the Alps.


Our workshops on the day before the conference offer a deep insight into the topics of the conference. Our international workshop organisers have a lot of experience and are great teachers.


Our lounge area allows you to relax between the talks and meet our speakers face-to-face. Smaller events like fireside chats or 'ask me anything' sessions will be hosted in this area as well.
