  • Different formats. Instead of the “two talks, 45 minutes each”, we want to try new things. So it could be a workshop, a hackathon, a contest, a karaoke night. If we have a nice idea, we want to try it. If you have an idea, let us know and maybe we can do something together!
  • A diversity-first waitlist. We are saving spots for people in underrepresented groups (for example: women, people of colour, LGBTQ people, disabled people, and people facing economic or social hardships). If you are on the waitlist and believe you are part of an underrepresented group, let one of our organisers know and you will either change your waitlist status (to ‘Yes’) or bump you up to the top of the waitlist.
  • New locations. We want you to feel comfortable when going to our meetups, and support local businesses. That’s why we decided to host our meetups at smaller companies and startups throughout Amsterdam and other cities in the Netherlands.
