It was the 2nd DNX - Digital Nomad Conference taking place on October 3-4 in the betahaus | cafe.
And what do the digital nomads talk about when they gather at one place? Here are impressions of Marcus & Feli:
'The world has changed a lot. These days it is easier than ever to sustainable travel the world while making money online. A growing number of "digital nomads" are now calling the road their home, living this lifestyle. And interest in the digital nomad lifestyle is growing by leaps and bounds.
Over 350 attendees finished the weekend inspired, motivated, and with notebooks full of hands-on tips and tricks to implement this lifestyle for themselves.
The first day of the DNX we had over 100 attendees participating in sold-out workshops at betahaus. It started with a breakfast brought by Elance-Odesk, followed by 8 different workshops on topics such as: Challenge Yourself, Find Your Passion, Online Marketing Basics, From Self-Employment to Solopreneurship, How to Launch a Product, From Idea to Business Model, Selfmarketing, and Setting Up Your Business.
In the evening there was a little party which provided plenty of time for attendees to connect and to do some organized speed-networking.
Here are some impressions of the betahaus workshop day:
The second, main day offered a solid mix of speakers from inspirational stories to business "how-to's" and travel tips.'
This was all in German, but don't worry! Here are some GOOD NEWS: Next year there will be an international English-speaking DNX Event in Berlin as well: DNX Global

Throughout the whole night, you will find the rooms of The Basement filled with art pieces from our favorite Berlin-based creatives. From illustrations to paintings to wooden sculptures and installations - we've made sure to host an inclusive Berlin-like mix of all things art. Let us introduce to you to some of the artists, who you will meet down in The Basement:
Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.
From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.
In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.
Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.
Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!
In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.
Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.
Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.
We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.
Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
