After seven days of conferences, hackathons and satellite events on topics related to technology, society and digital industries, Berlin Web Week 2015 came to a close on Sunday.

This time around, the week-long festival was expected to bring out more than 18,000 visitors to the German capital spanning from founders to web activists and hackers to designers.

Now in its eighth year, Berlin Web Week aims to highlight current web trends and tech projects from Germany and abroad.
