FOMO Berlin: March 28 - April 4

Weekly newsletter keeping you up to date on the coolest events for tech & culture in Berlin

Hi Berliners 👋

It's me, Cephas, and the Newcon team! Welcome to FOMO Berlin - “the weekly newsletter keeping you up to date on the coolest events for tech & culture in Berlin", hand-curated by the Newcon community 💙 and me ✌🏽

Why FOMO Berlin?

For my weekend activities, I enjoy visiting the site Mit Vergnügen to discover cultural events, happening on the weekend. I always felt a bit frustrated 😤 that there was nothing similar to this for tech events and builders like us 🧑‍💻 

So whenever I discovered a cool event, I shared it with my friends to provide us with a great opportunity to meet in person.

With FOMO Berlin, I simply aim to solve my own problem 😎 and make it just a bit easier to share all cool events with my friends 🤓

What did you FOMO last week?
