TechSummits: Why does LeaseWeb organize them?

TS_CoreViz_RGB_300Our TechSummits have been going for a couple of years now. They started small – just a bunch of LeaseWeb guys getting together to talk tech – but last year’s TechSummit Amsterdam marked a turning point. With well over two hundred attendees and some 20 speakers we knew we were on to something big. That’s why we’re expanding the concept. This year there will be multiple TechSummits, in prime locations such as Berlin and Amsterdam, which gives us the opportunity to give something back to the tech community.

Sharing knowledge. Having fun.
LeaseWeb has a huge amount of talent in its ranks. The guys and girls in DevOps, Product Engineering and SysAdmin represent the real heartbeat of the company. Getting and sharing knowledge is a key part of their job and TechSummits provide the perfect forum for this.

It’s a bit like an Open Source community where everyone contributes and everyone benefits. TechSummits are also a lot of fun. While the presentations are concerned with important topics, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the venues we choose very cool. Good food and a beer or two also help make the day even more special.

Thanks to sponsorship, we can keep ticket prices low so everyone who’s interested can come. Our sponsors, like Microsoft and ServerDensity, are hugely important in making TechSummits happen and we’re really grateful for their support. It’s also a great platform for them to share their own ideas, to network with tech professionals and make a connection with the people who use their products. That’s what we call a win- win.
