First of the month is coming up again and there’s a formidable array of tech events lining up for Barcelona in June.
We can’t promise that they’ll “ignite” Barcelona or that the hopefully warming temperatures will make you want to take a truly “deep dive” into Barcelona tech waters, but whether you´re interested in startups, tech tradeshows, industry seminars, developer meetups or just glass-in-hand networking events … there´s something for you virtually every week — and most nights of most weeks — here in Barcelona.
So, no need to feel at a loss for what do do if you’re interested in tech and are either visiting or live in Barcelona. There are now a considerable number of technology and startup events listings competing for your attention … here are a few of the ones we have found and recommend the most:
Additionally, you can find many of the local developer group meetups listed in the right-hand column on this site , along with links to university programs for technology and entrepreneurship, incubators and accelerators and more!
Is it just us, or are the number and frequency of tech networking events in Barcelona in danger of becoming … well, shall we say, a “distraction”?
Some people do work (or try to work) in a viable business, whether established or a startup, and most of us (except in the saddest of cases) try to have some kind of meaningful emotive life or even the occasional moment for some true R&R (“reflection and restorative thinking”). So, we ask you: how can anyone possibly attend, much less find lasting value, in any more than a fraction of all the tech networking events on the agenda every month in Barcelona?
Not that Barcelona Tech Talk wants to rain on anyone’s parade, but with all the Damm/Moritz sponsored networking events virtually every day/night, during most weeks of any given month, it’s beginning to feel a bit, well, frothy … no? As though maybe (just maybe?), all the networking events might be substituting a bit for substance, as though (shall we dare say it?) a world-class tech hub can be wished or networked into existence with enough cheerleading … and free Moritz/Damm beer, of course!
Just sayin’ … and if you completely disagree, well, that’s why “comments” on blogsites like this exist. 🙂
So, without further opinion, we hope to see you over a glass of Moritz or Damm beer at one (or more) of the following upcoming Barcelona tech events that we’ve managed to track for the merry, merry month of May. Take a look, especially, at Digital Week Barcelona, running from Mon-Sat, May 13-18th at various venues throughout the city … it promises to be an interesting week, and month!
