UX Designer Andreas Echterhoff: „Darüber müssen wir auf dem #DLSummit sprechen“

Natürlich könnten wir euch an dieser Stelle ausführlich erklären, warum ihr euch unbedingt ein Early Bird-Ticket für unseren Digitale Leute Summit am 13. November in Köln holen solltet.Wir könnten aber auch einfach jemand fragen, der sich ein Ticket für den Summit geholt hat, ohne dass er all diese Infos gehabt hat. Also haben wir genau das getan.

Wie wir Digitale Leute weiterentwickeln

Wir von Digitale Leute wenden uns heute erstmals in eigener Sache an euch. Wir werfen mit euch einen Blick auf das vergangene Jahr, auf über 60 Interviews und 4 Meetups. Denn mit dem Summit steht ein großes Projekt vor der Tür.

Wie gefallen dir unsere Interviews?

Bitte nimm Dir kurz 2 Minuten Zeit und helfe uns, unsere Inhalte weiter zu verbessern.
