    Why do we need such collections

    Every day in our country dozens of events for IT specialists take place and, what is good, there are more and more of them. On the other hand, to visit everything (even for a particular topic or direction) is simply not physically possible. Plus, it is often difficult to find a worthwhile event for which you would not have been asked for space money.

    The choice of the most interesting is a task that we have been solving for several years within the framework of Moscow. We select relatively inexpensive, and most often free, but useful events that will help you to upgrade your skill, technology start-up or just chat with experts.

    Moscow Techstars Startup Digest- this is a weekly mailing of events for startups, developers, designers and, in principle, all those who are interested in the topic of IT, UI / UX design and everything from fintech to blockchain and AI systems. Most recently, we talked about the history of this project.

    So, let's go to the digest.
