Germany’s leading conference at the intersection of Tech, UX & Product
We believe that software product people are the ones that create the future. Successful digital products are developed by teams at the intersection of tech, design & business. Digitale Leute Summit is the only networking- and professional education event for Software Engineers, Designers, Product- and Digital Managers that focuses on the cross-functional aspects of digital product development.
In two days, you learn from top-notch international speakers how to successfully build better digital products. Get deep insights into the tools, tactics, and methods of professionals developing digital products in large-scale environments. Learn how these individuals and organizations find unique solutions to their digital challenges and get pragmatic advice for your daily work.
The team of Digitale Leute is aware that we are still living and working in mid-pandemic COVID-19 times. Therefore, persons will only be admitted to the DL Summit if they can show a complete vaccination or proof of recovery. Please read here for more information about our strategy and what we do to bring our Digitale Leute experience to you in a safe and healthy way.
Our workshops are hands-on expert sessions with a high degree of interaction. We are planning 5 parallel running workshops, covering topics relevant for all digital professionals working in cross-functional teams, i.e. Design Sprints, Product Discovery or OKRs in Agile Development.
We will host a networking event exclusively for selected CPOs, CTOs, CIOs and CDOs of large tech teams. The event is free of charge on an invite-only basis.
On the evening before our conference, we invite all ticket holders to our reception at Club Volta in Cologne’s vibrant quarter Schanzenviertel. There will be music, food and drinks to network and dance all night long. ART@TECH brings together artists, technologists and anyone who is curious to connect and show the blurry lines between various kinds of art and technology. http://www.club-volta.de/ Schanzenstraße 6 2 10/20 Gebäude 51063 Köln
In talks and interviews, international experts give insights of their everyday work in interdisciplinary teams. The audience will learn first hand about tools and tactics to build better digital products.
In 45 minutes long masterclasses, the participants have the chance to take a deeper dive into the speaker’s discipline and get answers to more complex challenges.
The tool stack for people from product, software development and UX Design has grown exponentially. In a dedicated 45-minute Tech Demo Masterclass, you can show your target group how to efficiently use your software tool in their daily workflows.
In a dedicated and prominent area of the event location, companies can present their product, service or job possibilities at their own booth. Attendees can stroll through the area and discover new interesting companies or make an appointment in advance with our conference app.
