Conference themes of the last 8 years

C

Just re-discovered this list of themes of some of the more well-known tech-related conferences across Europe and thought it might be nice/useful/fun to have around for future reference.

There’s a lot of link rot and not every conference has a theme every year, so there are some gaps. (If you can help me fill one or two, ping me.)
