Google I/O Extended recap
Good morning everybody!
Yesterday we had a blast at our Google I/O Extended viewing party in the beautiful Beurs van Berlage
in Amsterdam! We had a nice little corner in the back of the Haxpo conference area where we could meetup for drinks and pizza. There was a great vibe and we had a lot of positive feedback about the location and the pleasant ambience.
The room was packed when we started the live stream. +Johan Pelgrim
initially pulled up the 2014 recap video which was a bit hilarious, but he managed to get the 2015 livestream up a little later. It was pretty hot in the Berlage Zaal, so people went downstairs for a drink & snack. Fortunately we had a live stream there as well!
After the keynote a lot of people stayed around for a final drink & snack and helped clean up the mess we made. We got compliments from the Beurs van Berlage personnel that they had never seen such great cooperation to clean up a conference area by a group of attendees, so kudos to everyone who helped out!
