How to find us

See the picture in the description. There is a small red button on the door. Press this button and somebody will open the door.


It’s been a while, but we’re back! Our space had some renovation, which now allows us to do a workshop downstairs and a freeform upstairs if you want.


Instead of creating a traditional API using REST (a way to create a webserver and serve data to a website), we’ll be looking at GraphQL. This is a technology that has been picked up by larger companies, which allows you to do actual quering of your data.

Don’t worry if you didn’t really get that! We’ll be able to help everyone out, whether you’re a beginning with programming or somebody that already start doing NodeJS development.


Want to show of your project? Or need help with your project? It doesn’t need to be related to GraphQL - but that would be nice. Talk, learn and do projects with others.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need to bring anything?
A: Well, a laptop is kind of handy to start doing some actual programming. But don't require anything else besides a good mood!

Q: Who will be there?
A: A few mentors will always be available to help you. Either to answer questions, to make some examples, to give you hints or whatever you think need to get a step closer towards your goal of being a badass programmer.

Q: How long does the workshop take?
A: It really depends on you. You're welcome to stay as long as you want or is required. But the mentors will give a hint when they think it's time to wrap up.

See you soon :-) !
