Facebook Developer Circle Amsterdam and The Founder Institute Amsterdam team up to organize an event dedicated to software engineers that turned into tech entrepreneurs, are funded by angels and vc's, and build solutions for today's software developers. They tell about the business and technical challenges that popped up since they turned from an engineer into an entrepreneur. Ives van Hoorne and Bas Buursma, are friends since high-school and are founders of online code editor Codesandbox. CodeSandbox allows users to program and run applications in the browser. It is a full developer platform that allows users the ability to install npm modules, run their code, and share their applications with other users. They recently raised 2.4 million dollars, with a company valuation of approx 10 million dollars. The other speaker, Thijs Cadier, is founder of Appsignal. AppSignal is a complete monitoring service that tracks performance and exceptions in Ruby on Rails and Elixir applications. Amongst other features, it allows you to receive new exceptions, deploys and performance notifications in a Slack channel. Appsignal raised an undisclosed investment from angel investor Stefan Verkerk, who now fulfills a role as a CEO, whereas Thijs commands the technical roadmap and operations. This event is organized by the Facebook Developer Circle Amsterdam and the Founder Institute startup accelerator. Launched as an official Facebook initiative, Facebook Developer Circles are a global network of communities which brings devs together in their own local communities. Founder Institute Amsterdam provides a step-by-step program that gives startup founders the structure, mentor support, and network of entrepreneurs they need to start an enduring company. Based in Silicon Valley and with chapters across 60 countries, the Founder Institute's mission is to "Globalize Silicon Valley" and build sustainable startup ecosystems worldwide. Presentations will start at 19.00h. Guests are expected to take their seats before. More details will follow soon.
