Here comes the second edition of the world’s ﬁrst queer tech festival and it is once again going to take place in Berlin at Postbahnhof Club. The #unit festival is one of the largest queer tech events in the world and it is a platform for queer and straight techies as well as people who love technology to connect.
The goal of UNICORNS IN TECH is to make LGBTI* in tech more visible, to show various perspectives on technology and engage within the digital world. But…wait! What is this festival all about?
This year’s #unit festival theme is “Connecting Unicorns”. It is about how we connect diverse LGBTI* tech people underneath one roof, how we connect the queer community to the wider technology community – both on a personal and a professional level. How is it possible for us to connect the newest tech inventions with our daily life? Technology is changing our lives everyday, everywhere – we are always connected – no matter if we are socialising, working, jogging or dating.
Within one day 40+ passionate and qualiﬁed speakers will offer insight into different topics and let you get involved in various workshops. We will dive into discussions about gaming, virtual & augmented reality, app development, open data and data science, wearable electronics, solar energy technology, crowdfunding and start-ups.
Get a glimpse of recent breakthrough developments in neuroscience research, reﬂect on queer feminist leadership and on our gender identities and perceptions, master our coding skills, enjoy networking and some good music.
This will be a day full of excitement, encounters, performances, entertainment, presentations, installations, music, art and a lot of inspiration within one of Europe’s tech capitals. The program is going to be as diverse as its attendees. Get prepared for this unforgettable day!
Last year’s #unit festival welcomed 400 tech-enthusiasts. This year we are expecting twice as many participants from all over Germany and Europe. #unit is organised by UNICORNS IN TECH | Germany’s First Tech Community for Gays, Lesbians, Straight People, or However You May Identify.
This community is the ideal place for everyone who feels at home in the tech world, whether they are an industry professional or a casual enthusiast. So far more than 1.000+ members have joined the community.
