About The Event

DesCon 2017 is the third annual “Internet of Things/Shit” marathon. It is open to all creatives and developers who want to work together to make our digital and craft skills stronger and planet earth a more fun and sustainable place.

It is a collaborative multidisciplinary and computer programming event – aimed at local and regional participants in the Balkans and South East Europe. However, it attracts global leading thinkers, engineers, artists, designers and hobbyists from all corners of the world including, so far, participants from Brazil, New Zealand, Switzerland, UK and Germany.

DesCon 2017 theme is about use of technology to create skills, projects and IoT/IoS devices that monitor and alerts us of imminent changes in our environment as well as in our digital data ecosystem. For the first time this year, we dedicate a special workshop to gather, scrape, analyse and visualize ecological open data (e.g. from regional hydro-meteorological institute and National Office of Statistics) and build tools to understand correlations throughout time.

To raise awareness and address challenges of the Internet age, join us for Descon 3.0 marathon, to play with sensors, arduino robots with camera, digital currency, open data, fabrics and sounds.

See you in a new venue, KC Grad, in the heart of Belgrade!
