Get busy early this week – there’s a full selection of hot events and worthy workshops to spice up your calendar ahead of Easter Sunday. Here’s what you need to know.

Mon 2 April

Tech Open Air Berlin is holding a second planning session tonight. The group now has a mission statement – “the very first open air festival to unite the European tech community” – and a shortlist of venues including Mauerpark, Weinbergspark and Monbijou.

There’s still plenty of time to get involved – just join the Facebook group and head along tonight (and please catch up with an existing member first to get up to speed). Think SXSW plus TWiST plus summer
