What a year was 2017 for the Women Techmakers Berlin community, many cool events and even more cool new joiners.
Let's all gather and look back at all we have achieved this year, celebrate what we have done and get a glimpse of what we're planning for 2018!
One of our main focuses in the past year was public speaking, and not only we gave our attendees diversity tickets to some of the nicest tech conferences in the area, but we also sent several speakers. We'd love to keep developing this, and so for this event, our very special guests will be Bianca Praetorius and Tim Messerchmidt, who will give us a workshop on public speaking!
