Why attend Indie DevStock?

The world is a big place, and making lasting connections isn’t always easy. We often feel isolated and disconnected, with our only interactions happening on social media.

At Indie DevStock, you’ll have the opportunity to meet great people with whom you share common interests. You’ll enjoy two days of technical and inspirational talks from some of the industry’s most successful developers, designers and entrepreneurs. You’ll also get to experience the best southern-style food and live music — right in the heart of Music City!

What is Indie DevStock?

Indie DevStock is a place for people to come together and connect — a place where, as a community, we can learn and share new ideas. With a primary focus on independent app and game development, Indie DevStock is helping new comers and industry veterans level-up their skills.

Our speakers will share their stories, experiences and ideas with you. Through their words, you’ll gain a better understanding of the challenges indies face and more importantly, how to overcome them. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently a successful indie developer, just starting out or trying to decide if ‘going indie’ is right for you — we’re all in this together.

In addition to the session talks, you’ll also have an opportunity to attend hands-on workshops, team building exercises while enjoying all that Nashville has to offer.

What will you get out of the conference?

First and foremost, we want you to have fun and make connections within the community. Our goal is for you to walk away with a sense of empowerment.

Indie DevStock isn’t about earning a living as an indie; it’s about making a life fueled by creativity and personal connections. Even if you’re not an indie, we want you to be a part of Indie DevStock. We are all better together.

Why Nashville?

Nashville is full of great places to eat and shop. It’s also the place where music is inspired, written, recorded and performed. That’s right! You’ll be in the heart of Music City. No matter where you go, there’s live music around every corner!

During the two-day event, you’ll experience Southern Hospitality at its finest.

There are so many things to do in Nashville.

Why The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center?

The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is like a city within a city. Whether you stay and enjoy the restaurants, bars, stores and scenery inside the hotel and on the property, or decide to go out on the town, we’ve scheduled the conference sessions in such a way that you’ll have plenty of time to explore and experience Nashville.

Why Are We Doing This?

We’re organizing Indie DevStock so we can give back to our community.

The iOS/Cocoa Community is about supporting one another; it’s about encouraging people to reach their full potential; it’s about connections and teamwork.

Our goal is to bring people together and to spend a few days learning, sharing and realizing that we’re all mad here, and that’s OK. =]

We hope to see you there!
