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:
