Embodied tech, rockets, 3D printed organs, self-educated robots, wacky green cars – you name it, this year has been a vivid playground for the tech doers and lovers.
Now a new bright year is ahead of us. We have another 365 days to make it count. To sweeten things up, we give you some good news: Techsylvania 2016 is on its way!

On a superb summerish Saturday, we kicked off the 24 developing marathon at Casa de Cultura a Studentilor, having at the start of the competition more than 130 participants who eventually split in 29 active teams.
While there will be plenty of interesting speakers coming to Techsylvania this year, it is also important to take some time to get to know our partners, the people who helped us make this event a reality. Following the tradition we have set forth with interviewing our partners, today you will get to see what insight one of our most renowned Silver Partners, Laurentiu, Laurentiu and Associates, has to offer.
