What happened at the Berlin Tech Convention?
This week, the staff at DimensionAlley had the pleasure of participating in Re:publica 2017, a tech convention hosted in Berlin. From May 8-10th our employees witnessed many interesting speeches, exhibits, and demos. The convention was hosted in Station Berlin in the center of one of the eminent tech centers of Europe. Here’s our Re:publica Recap:
Attendees of the convention were given the chance to listen to many informative lectures on a number of topics in different conference halls and rooms. Topics ranged from industrial ideas and advancements to the history of small scale computers. The convention offered a great chance for those interested in the field of technologies to get more info about their field of interest or career. According to the Re:publica website, the convention offers the following, “re:publica is one of the largest and most exciting conferences about digital culture in the world. Since its foundation in 2007, it has grown from a cozy blogger meeting with 700 participants into a wide-ranging “society conference”, with 8.000 visitors at the anniversary edition re:publica TEN. Representatives of digital culture share their knowledge and decision-making tools, and discuss the future of the information society.”(re:publica/about-republica)
With over 700 international speakers, there seemed to be something for everyone over the 3 day event. The theme, Love Out Loud, advocates for acceptance and pride, this theme was present throughout the convention. The theme offered a strong statement that resonated with many of the guests. Along with the thousands of guests, over 800 journalists gathered to document the exchange of lessons and information.
