Each year thousands of IBM clients, business partners, IT professionals and IBM employees attend TechU events held around the world. TechU equips you with the knowledge and essential skills necessary to deliver the innovations of tomorrow. Learn to leverage disruptive technology trends like cloud and cognitive at the IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) in Düsseldorf.

Fun fact: the Königsallee in Düsseldorf, also know as "the KÖ", is Germany’s busiest upmarket shopping street: it is nearly a kilometer long full of international flagship stores and shopping centres. The town claims they are home to the "longest bar in the world", located in Düsseldorf’s Altstadt (Old Town). And lastly, “wheels of joy” play an important role in the city’s history: in 1288, after winning a battle and receiving the town charter, children did wheels of joy. Even today, when you are strolling through the Old Town, children will offer to do cartwheels and there is even an annual cart-wheeling tournament.
