This year again, our expert Nicolas Diacono flew to Austin, Texas, to participate to the well known event South by South West Festival.
In addition to the film and music aspects, which are the historical pillars of the festival, #SXSW really is a prospective event. This meetup, which takes places from March 8th till March 17th, focuses on interactive and digital medias. It has become a very inspirational hub nourished by brilliant conferences led by very high caliber speakers (such as Priscilla Chan, Brian Solis). Views expressed are as wide as Health, sport, food, social impact, VR & AR, startups, new tech, design, coding, or governments.
In a nutshel, SXSW is a creative and boosting explosion!
