The theme for the second running of the Heureka conference is ‘discover the five elements of a startup’ and speakers will include HitFox’s Jan Beckers, Gitta Blatt from Wooga and Pawel Chudzinksi from Point Nine Capital. It’s not too late to secure a ticket – more info here. At Alte Münze, from 9am through till 10pm.

Also on Tuesday is the Start-up Berlin Meetup; a networking event – without presentations – which is aimed at garnering the maximum opportunity for interaction for its attendees whilst retaining a small group atmosphere. Tickets cost €7 or €8 and come with a free drink and a simple buffet. At the WYE Lounge at Skalitzer Strasse 86, from 6-10pm.


Wannabe techies can become a web developer in just four weeks with the Code Bootcamp program, which is suitable both for complete beginners and the more advanced. The teaching is through a variety of live group sessions, hands-on mentoring and online courses. Classes will take place on four consecutive Wednesday evenings, beginning this week. The program costs €59.
