#bottish 🚀 Edition 5: Shifting our conference

Dec 14, 2017 · 2 min read

Our 5th edition of bottish December 7, 2017 unfolded in the new boutique style. 6 speakers and a higher density of content and interaction about the worldwide automation going on with bots, AI, machine learning and robotics was a great exit.

For the first time we streamed our conference not only online to our >1800 members community in slack but in addition we co-hosted over 10 offline meet-ups in various cities in Europe.

Starting 5.30pm CET with the opening session, Thomas Schulz welcomes the hosts in Switzerland, UK, France, Croatia and Austria with over 300 participants.

This was the starting point to an intensive, 180 minutes lasting firework of knowledge transfer, best practise and expert insights presentations from our speakers. Overall we had >1000 online viewers joining the webinars.
