    Hi all, I hope you don't mind me promoting this weekend's iBeacon Hackathon. GlimwormBeacons and Sanoma and Appsterdam are running the Hackathon at VondelCS and the Amsterdam Economic Board have donated a GOOGLE GLASS as a prize. We are looking not only for programmers but all sorts of skills to make an iBeacon prototype this weekend. If you can come the link is here Regards

    Thank you for the very inspiring Meetup Yuri and co! Nice examples how we can work with the machines and not against them! SOrry no networking time for me but I would love to organise a Meetup in Eindhoven on Redefining Limits with the Brainport region! Who wants to join, combining it with a co-creation session.

    Great event... Ritik was more fascinated by Dan, since that combines two of his interests (Space & Robots)... I was impressed how much Niel's presentation touches with current reality... Loved it! Worth pulling Ritik out of school for ;-)

    When do the signups of CIG2014 know they're in next round?

    April 30

  • Yuri van G.

    We have selected our venue:

    It is the ---HILTON HOTEL ROTTERDAM---

    It is very near the Rotterdam Central Station, a 5 minutes walk. Parking is easy as well due to parking spots like:

    Weena 10

    There is a great bar for drinks and food afterwards, even for 250 people.

    Drinks and food are paid for by the attendees themselves as it is a free event.
