Recently I visited the Developer Conference 2013 in Hamburg (developer-conference.eu), a German speaking conference about programmierung and web business initiated by Tarek Mueller (@TarekMueller) and Sebastian Betz who live inside the Hamburg startup scene.
The conference was held for the third time, this time in a much bigger environment. In opposite to the first two years with around 300 visitors in the OTTO building, this year the Cinemaxx was rented for around 1500 visitors.
Here I list a short summary of the talks I have visited attaching a small comment from me. I need to say sorry for the uncomfortable table format.
