Developers, developers, developers!


A never ending Balmer meme speaks to Europe’s tech ecosystem, which has a pipeline of 5.5 million developers, as opposed to 4.4 million in the USA. Those numbers might add an extra inch in the long haul, especially when it comes to attracting talent to start-ups that tackle blockchain, AI and autonomous driving, says Tom Wehmeier, who’s Partner and Head of Research at Atomico upon today’s release of The State of European Tech.

The Decentralized Dance Party is coming to Europe

„The Decentralized Dance Party (DDP) is a portable, battery-powered Party System. It consists of hundreds of Party people, carrying boomboxes, and a DJ who wears a backpack, containing an FM transmitter. All the boomboxes are tuned into the DJ’s master FM broadcast, resulting in a mobile, synchronized sound system.“

And it’s coming to Europe this September. The creators Tom and Gary from Vancouver, are simply using oldskool tech without the web, coupled with tons of dance legs and boomboxes. The dress code is akin to Deichkinds, also tons of fun, music video „Bück Dich hoch“. Oh, and the DDP adventure in Europe is crowd powered and still needs your help.
