ThingsCon Salon Berlin (March 2017) is a wrap!

March 28, 2017

We just held the first of our freshly started series of ThingsCon Salons Berlin.

You can find all recorded talks in the Youtube playlist ThingsCon Salon Berlin (March 2017) as well as embedded below.

Our speakers for the salon were the amazing trip of Jon Rogers (Mozilla Open IoT Studio / University of Dundee), Rachel Rayns (creative technologist, crafts expert, #vanlife aficionado), and Davide Gomba (Casa Jasmina). A big thank you for contributing to this Salon. Also a big thank you to Babitha George of the Indian design research studio Quicksand who would have been speaking had her visa not being revoked in the last second due to a hotel booking miscommunication. We missed you and hope we can invite you over soon!

We’d also like to thank Mozilla Berlin for kindly hosting us in their event space as well as taking care of our A/V needs. It’s thanks to Mozilla that we were able to capture speakers and their slides so nicely.

It was great to see the turnout for this Berlin Salon. We were especially happy to see that about half of all participants hadn’t been to a ThingsCon event before—that’s a great sign that our community and its footprint are in fact growing. Yay!

On that note, here are all the talks:
