Central Theme

This year’s central theme is ‘Work efficient and live your life’. With our speaker and topic selection we want to give you a guide on how to improve the holy grail of ‘work-life balance’.

You will learn how to work more efficient with sane approaches to front-end tooling, hear how to find your niche in our industry, listen to building side projects while caring about your children and husband / wife and get advice how to stay up to date in todays’ fast-moving world.

Animation by Fritz Gnad. Music by Tobi Lessnow.


We chose five high-level speakers entertaining you during this evening at the conference.

Master Of Ceremonies


For the 2015 event we chose a new location.
NightlyBuild 2015 was held at the Theaterhaus in central Cologne, Germany.

The following photos have been made by our lovely photographers Marc Thiele and Christian Schaefer. See the albums here and here.

How to find the venue

The venue is located in the center of Cologne Ehrenfeld, one of the neighbourhoods where youth like to meet—with a lot of small cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs. Bahnhof Ehrenfeld is just around the corner and the subway station Körnerstraße (line 3 and 4) is also in 5 minute walking distance.

Address: Klarastr. 53, 50823 Köln
