The Big Berlin Breakdown: August 5 – 11

By David Knight |

Check out Silicon Allee’s weekly rundown of all the best events going on in our fair city: what’s happening, what’s coming up and what may be of interest whether you be investor, entrepreneur or hacker. It’s high summer so many are on holiday, but there is still plenty to do!


Being an expat in a foreign city can be a daunting experience. One solution lies with Berlin-based startup G1obals, which links its expat members with a network of trusted businesses and services. The company is hosting an event for people to come and find answers to practical issues concerning housing, jobs and professional services, as well as being a gateway to connections and special offers in the city’s international community. The event is free for G10bals members but there’s a €10 cover charge for non-members, which includes a welcome drink and Louisiana hot summer barbecue. More info here. At Park Plaza at Wallstrasse 23-24, from 7-10pm.


RubyMotion is an iOS and OS X app developer tool, and the RubyMotion Berlin group is holding a dinner at which participants can network, work on their app developing skills, ask the experts questions and continue producing their own creations – along, of course, with eating and drinking. Sign up here – you need to join the group first. Venue to be confirmed, from 7.30pm.
