This past weekend, one of the biggest celebrations of LGBTQI+ equality took place in the Netherlands. From July 28 until August 5, Amsterdam Pride 2018, took over the city! The nine day festival, beginning with the Pride Walk and opening celebration at Vondelpark, was a well attended and atmospheric event.
This week we are featuring the latest listing on Venopi, Day Made, a specialty espresso bar and gallery located on the corner of Jan van Galenstraat and Willem de Zwijgerlaan in Amsterdam West. Inside the espresso bar and gallery is light, spacious, and organic venue that could be the perfect location for your next event!
What happens when you drop two fierce Venopis right in the middle of the Battle of the Sensors? They get to the finals of The Next Web 2017 hackathon, that’s what happens! We are pretty proud of this, and here’s a little sneak peak in what we worked on. As you may know TNW holds a yearly conference in Amsterdam, but not only that - they also organize “kick-ass hack battles”.
No, no, this is not your random hipster laptop-screen-lit-in-the-dark stock photo. Truth be told, we do work mostly at night. Well, at least most of us do. We are a busy bunch, trying to make a damn fine idea happen. And so our after-work hours tend to get busy. Those are great evenings filled with discussions, Skype calls, code writing, decisions, endless UX debates, copy, Slack and, well, human fuel (aka food).
But… What is this, how did we get here and what have we done so far?
