TechSummit is coming to Berlin
TechSummit is coming to Berlin for the first time – experts from the tech community will meet at the KulturBrauerei event venue on 13 April 2016 for the conference's German premiere. Featured on the agenda, among others, are Berlin-based companies Soundcloud and Zalando. With its origins in Amsterdam, TechSummit (by LeaseWeb) will branch out to the US and Berlin this year.
TechSummit is proud to team up with many strong partners in Berlin, with login.berlin being among the most important ones. The German capital is one of the most important locations for the IT and digital industries in Germany. In addition, Berlin has become a global hotspot for startups. One of the goals of login.berlin is to represent the diversity and special features that make up the digital economy in Berlin. With the help of the business, political, research and administrative sectors the campaign aims to show the strengths of the German capital. Hosting TechSummit is another important step towards the future for the digital economy in Berlin.
Still to this day, the KulturBrauerei, which was built at the end of the 19th century, is a landmark of industrialisation in Berlin. Started as a small-scale brewery and modified according to plans by architect Franz Heinrich Schwechten in 1878 the six courtyards and roughly 20 buildings that together make up the KulturBrauerei are a reflection of what Berlin is today: a unique mix of modern infrastructure built into a historical setting. In a short amount of time, an innovative mix of creative service providers and diverse cultural offerings has developed from this appealing concept.
It seems only logical that the KulturBrauerei was chosen to host the German premiere of the conference on 13 April. Renowned speakers from the technology, retail and marketing industries will share their thoughts on current issues. This year's topic "designing for scalability" is set to spark some fascinating debates. Discussions will include Matthias Rampke, engineer at Berlin-based startup Souncloud, who will share insights on how to organise the daily support of 175 million users. Arjun Naik, responsible for site reliability at online retailer Zalando, will talk about his experiences from the world of microservices.
