The original Appsterdam Launch Party Weekend rather famously featured guided tours of the city. This weekend's launch party was specifically planned on the first Saturday in November—Museumnacht—the only night when Amsterdam's famed museums stay open, turning the city into one of the biggest multi-venue, multi-genre nerd parties in the world.

Our original plan was to have people pay for their own tickets. Then SoftLayer ( swooped in and picked up the tab, so we've got over 40 App Makers going to Museumnacht for free."
