Meet Us @ Digitale Leute Summit 2019

When? November 27th & 29th Where? Palladium, Cologne, Germany What is it? The Digitale Leute Summit (digitale Leute = digital people) is a two-day conference focused on digital product development. It brings together professionals from a variety of backgrounds, e.g. software engineers, designers, product- and digital managers, startup CEOs).

DLS workshops, keynotes, talks, interviews, and panels offer insights into state-of-the-art tools and strategies used by top players when creating or relaunching products for a digital market. The summit organizers also put together side program that includes interactive art installations, electronic live music, and–of course–a Digitale Leute party.
