Chris Roland and me went to see Willem Velthoven of mediamatic today to talk about the final details concerning Barcamp Amsterdam. Willem really is a great guy and has been very generous in providing us with support in any way he can for Barcamp Amsterdam. We went on the roof of the POSTCS building, what a view of Amsterdam! I hope it won’t rain on thursday for the opening of Barcamp so we can hold it on the terrace (the weather forecast doesn’t look that good though) Afterwords Chris (a very kewl dude) and I went to get a simcard for his phone but alas his phone was simlocked! :-( I hope het gets his phone unlocked tomorrow!

A couple of us Barcamp Amsterdammers and DrupalConners got together last night for food and drinks in Cafe de Jaren in Amsterdam. I got to meet (amongst others) Andy Smith of Flock and Roland & Adrian of Bryght. They’re great guys and the evening was a lot of fun. We we’re counting on like six people to show up but in the end lots of people joined us so word got out. Now if only the same happens at Barcamp Amsterdam…;-)

We have a venue for Barcamp Amsterdam! Thanks to Willem Velthoven the head honcho at Mediamatic we can use their workshop space and kitchen! We only have room for about 40-50 people so sign up! Pictures of the place can be found here. Thanks again to Willem Velthoven and the Mediamatic crew for providing us with the space to hold Barcamp Amsterdam. Chris from Flock has written about it here. So remember the event is October 20th-21st in Amsterdam. More blogs about barcamp amsterdam. barcamp amsterdam
In October OSCON the Open Source Conference will be in Amsterdam. There are no free exhibit hall passes or non profit projects. So from the guys who brought you Bar Camp there is now Bar Camp Amsterdam. Location to be determined
Living in Amsterdam attendance is a no-brainer for me ;-) For impressions of the previous Bar Camp check out these flickr pages. barcamp amsterdam
