Hippo GetTogether Amsterdam: August 20

Coming to Amsterdam this summer: the Hippo GetTogether! After two very successful
Hippo Forge Fridays, we're extending the program with talks and showcase presentations. This was a popular request from people that have participated in previous the Forge Fridays. We've put together a well balanced program, with tech talks, end-user talks, newcomer talks, a usability track and talks anywhere in between. Semi-definite programme: (
Green is less technical,
red is for techies)

    The Hippo GetTogether was really nice and provided me (as presenter of the Usability sidetrack) with very valuable feedback from clients and users. To all those there: Thanks!

    It was fun, i liked the separation between "not-so-technical" and "technical" talks. And it was nice to be able to put a name to the faces that are on the mailing list.

    It was a great day! Talks not too long, good informal vibe, nice weather and still everyone stayed inside :-). Enough subjects came along to push to next levels.

    Things that could improve: the beamer was not so good. Too much light in the room for such a big screen. The room itself was not so useful for breaks, with all the chairs and tables. When is the next meeting? :-)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
