Hackers and Founders Building Opening Party!

This meetup will be in our new building, Herengracht 504! 

Beers: Mama pale ale, Lekker Bek (new Saison with mustard and dille) and the new award winning Gaia 2.0 IPA from Amsterdam's Oedipus brewing.

Food: Thali and Tandoori from popup restaurant Joeri Tandoeri. There will be curry, meat, vegetarians and weather permitting nan breads cooked in the Tandoori ovens on the patio. This will be a full dinner so there will be no need to eat before hand. It should cost about 8 or 9 euros for a full meal. There will also be finger food at various stages in the evening. 

Speakers:

FoundationDB w/ Jessica Rullman & Jessica Winter: NoSQL database option visiting from the US. What is FoundationDB, and how is it different from other NoSQL databases? How hard is it to get started with it and scale FoundationDB compared to other databases? Learn what happens when the power goes out at one of your data-centers, and why you shouldn't care.

Social Magnetics w/ Christian Beaumont & Behnaz Beaumont: What happens when Teddy Bears can talk to lights? How that is related to databases? How people will be able to use our platform to solve global scale connectivity problems, and some other cunning plans from Social Magnetics a user of FoundationDB.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who came out. Jessica and I enjoyed introducing people to FoundationDB, but more importantly, we loved hearing about the startups that everyone is working on. I expect great things from the Amsterdam startup community now!

    If you'd like to stay in touch you can reach me at @jrullmann or [masked].

    Thanks again for the warm welcome to Amsterdam!
