When it comes to Berlin and the weather, you can never be sure what's going to happen. Sometimes summer is only three weeks long, other times winter just doesn't come at all. Then there's those times that the weather is so intense, the S-Bahn just plain gives up. eurucampers last year experienced one of those days: despite having many outdoor activities planned for the Saturday night, a massive thunderstorm dramatically laid those plans to rest and the evening ended with everyone running for cover.
So this year, we're covering all our bases and are excited to announce that for the first time ever, we will be hosting a eurucamp movie night!
This is not just any movie. We will be screening the documentary CODE - Debugging the Gender Gap. The Indiegogo funded film premiered this year at the Tribeca Film Festival to rave reviews and won't even be available to the broader public before next year.
The documentary explores the lack of women and minorities in tech through interviews with tech companies, women and minorities in the industry, and personal stories. CODE aims to "encourage more people in tech to join the movement to make the industry more inclusive and thus more efficient for all." Given that only 17% of tech jobs at Google, and 15% of tech jobs at Facebook are held by women, the diversity problem is one that needs to be solved sooner rather than later.
We're thrilled to invite to you an exclusive screening of this inspiring film on Saturday August 1st at 8:30 pm in the cinema of the Filmuniversität Babelsberg. There might also be a skype call with the director after the film, so it's not to be missed!
Because seating is limited to 200, we ask that you reserve a spot on rubyweek. The event is open to eurucamp attendees as well as other interested members of the community.
