#btconf Düsseldorf, Germany 13 - 14 May 2024

The idea of Side Events is to include local Usergroups and Meetups to join us for the week we run beyond tellerrand in and present their groups to maybe a different kind of audience, than they usually have. A chance for them and us to grow our audience and get the word out. Whether the event is for free or paid, we'd like to get you to also be part of this. Interested? Please, let us know

See what’s already been cooked for you below. Ordered by date of the events taking place.

IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf

IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf

I repeat myself when I say it is important to own your data. Maybe even more important than ever before. But there still is a lot of work to be done to help people to understand what “owning your data” actually means at all and how to get started. Or even how to start their first own website. Interested? We’re meeting for a two-day bar camp like collaboration in Düsseldorf again. Brainstorming, working, teaching, helping and much more. Join in on Saturday, May 11th and Sunday, May 12th and get your ideas out of your head and your hands dirty together with your hosts Joschi Kuphal and Tantek Çelik.

What is happening on those two days?

Day one, 11 May is giving you an introduction to this topic and is a day with discussions in a bar camp like environment. Bring a topic you'd like to discuss or join on topics as they are added to the board.

Day two, 12 May is all about implementing what you discussed. Work in groups with others or simply on your own. Demos at the end of the day show what everyone worked on and has achieved.

Both days are free to attend in general, but a small donation of €5 to €10 would be nice in order to get the base cost lower or covered. We are happy to be back at the City Library of Düsseldorf for this event on the Saturday, but if you know of a location we can use for the Sunday: please get in touch with Joschi or Tantek as we are still looking for a place to be on Sunday.

This Is What I Want to Do – Screening

This Is What I Want to Do – Screening

We would like to invite you to experience the first screening as a side event of “beyond tellerrand” together with us! We are very grateful that Sipgate has given us the opportunity to show you our film “This Is What I Want to Do” (97 minutes), which was finally completed in January after five years of work.

In our documentary “This Is What I Want to Do”, we show how conference organiser Marc Thiele aims to build a positive community and bridge the gap between creativity and technology with his event “beyond tellerrand”.

The screening will take place right before the Warm-Up at Sipgate’s offices in Düsseldorf. If you already have tickets for the Warm-Up, you can simply stay for the Warm-Up after the screening.

It’s important for us that everyone, especially the beyond tellerrand community, can see the documentary. Therefore the screening is completely free. But if you want to make us really happy and support our aim to get the film to as many festivals as possible, please consider to donate some money during the registration process (“pay what you want”). Thank you!
