Berlin is Tech Central this week!
With Campus Party Europe and the very first Tech Open Air festival both happening in Berlin this week, we’re in for a busy few days of workshops, innovations and networking. Campus Party - the world’s largest tech event with over 10,000 participants - kicked off to a great start last night and promises to be a fantastic global gathering of hackers, geeks and entrepreneurs. The motto of this year’s Campus Party Europe is to “retype Europe’s source code - to transform Europe into a better place”, and whether you are interested in astronomy, robotics, gaming, entrepreneurship or any of the other 24 subject areas, there are plenty of keynotes, panels and challenges to attend. Two of the most prominent speakers this year are Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho and the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who will be talking about the Internet, its beginnings and its future. We’ll be on site at Berlin’s historic Tempelhof airport all week - look for us in our Tumblr t-shirts and ask for some stickers!
Tech Open Air will begin tomorrow, with pitches and workshops revolving around the start-up scene, as well as talks and panel discussions by established entrepreneurs in the tech scene. All this will be followed by numerous satellite events across the city on Friday, with barbecues, brunches and evening shindigs to round off the two day festival. And of course we’re hosting a Tumblr Summer Social on Friday, an opportunity to meet old and new friends, as well as let our hair down a little during one of the busiest weeks of the year.
If you’re in Berlin this week be sure not to miss out on these techtastic events!
