Upcoming Barcelona technology events …

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:

First Tuesday Barcelona

Barcelona International Network

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!


Barcelona tech events for the merry, merry month of May …

Barcelona BeersIs 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!
