Meet the team behind Children of Doom!

Everyone is hustling to help transform the ideas in Boris' head into a buzzing community and a festival like no one has ever seen before.
The time from the beginning until today is packed of location scouting, research, brainstorming, fine-tuning and we just can't wait to meet everyone again in
May 15 & 16, 2020!

Join our community and give scientists the stage they deserve!

At the age of 12, Boris built his first computer by soldering together the different parts and learned to code from books (Internet wasn‘t around back then). He was still a college student when he founded his first company, which later ‚imploded‘ as part of the dotcom bubble. Undaunted by that experience, he founded a conference in 2009 for Android developers in Berlin: droidcon. 

Currently hosted in more than 20 countries worldwide, droidcon is a conference for Android developers. All technical aspects of the mobile Android ecosystem are covered in the multi-day events. Along with developments for smartphones, topics include IoT, AI and B2B solutions.

Boris believes in the power of imagination as well as the power of facts. He is currently working on Children of Doom in which scientists and lay people interested in research deal with existential questions in the fields of technology and natural sciences. In this case, theory and practice complement each other in the form of talks and workshops. All this is linked to a good measure of humor, because the fun of doing things together is still the best motivation for tackling challenges and initiating change.
