Berlin Geekettes – Kantine am Berghain

width="139"Date: 27 February 2014
Location: Berghain Kantine, Berlin
Costs: €15

Berlin. An amazing city filled with tech and music enthusiasts who are busy producing, DJing, designing and building software that allows artists to share their music with millions around the world. It’s an exciting time for creatives in Berlin. But unfortunately, there is a despairingly low number of females producing in the electronic dance community and even fewer who are entering the technology industry. So the Berlin Geekettes want to show their appreciation to all the women that have inspired them over the years and join together for a fun evening of discussion and dance at Katine am Berghain. See event page for the full line up!
