About Felix Krause

Felix Krause, creator of fastlane

I'm the founder of fastlane, an open source tool for iOS and Android developers focussed on making building and releasing apps easier.

Just the last year, fastlane has saved over 15,000,000 developer hours and is used by tens of thousands of companies around the world.

I move to a new place every month.


I work on fastlane at Google and previously Twitter in San Francisco.

Privacy research

I've published various privacy related essays on the iOS permission system. As a result my posts reached #1 on HackerNews multiple times and got covered by major media outlets - Read more about my privacy publications.

Open Source

Additionally to fastlane, I'm involved in other open source projects, like danger.

I'm the founder of iOS-factor.com, an open source best-practices guide on how to build high-quality iOS apps.


I spoke at various conferences around the world, most recently Tokyo, Melbourne, Budapest, Bangalore, Vienna, Berlin and San Francisco. For speaking engagements get in touch with me using the form below. Check out my speaking schedule.
