I am looking for an intern to help me organize various events for the Dutch startup world such as more Lunch 2.0s, another iPhone Dev Camp, and a trip to the Slush Conference in Helsinki in late November. I believe that it would be a great opportunity for a student interested in event planning and technology to learn about the Dutch technology startup world and about event planning. The internship would be one day a week at my offie in the Volkskrantgebouw in Amsterdam and would last for at least 3 months. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or anyone you know are interested.
I am part of the Hot 100 ‘up-and-coming creative media talent of the Netherlands’ and will be at the Picnic Conference in Amsterdam on September 25. Since there’s 100 of us, I think it’s mostly just a networking event. Either way, I’m excited to be part of the day.
On October 2 I will be at the ArcticStartup birthday party in Helsinki and will talk about the startup scenes in Amsterdam, Silicon Valley, and Helsinki. I had a great time in Helsinki last May attending BarCampHelsinki (there’s a second one on September 27) and look forward to talking to all the Finnish startups.
Also, the iPhone Dev Camp was a great success and articles have popped-up all over the Dutch media. Bright.tv made a nice video on which you can hear me blabber about the event, and there were also articles at iPhone Club (1 and 2), NU.nl (and also a mention of the Bright.tv video), iPhoned.nl, MacWereld.nl and LifeHacking.nl. A few of the articles mentioned me, so that was nice publicity!
We had the iPhone Dev Camp yesterday at Mediamatic and I think that overall it was a big success. We had 80+ people packed in and coding throughout the day. While most of us were beginners, I think we laid the groundwork for an exciting mobile development scene. Today was spent recovering from the event (I’m still exhausted!) and got me to thinking. As much as I like organizing events, I think that I may need to scale back. I feel like some of my clients have been neglected and I have a lot of personal projects I’d like to pursue if I had more free time. At the same time, organizing events like the Dev Camp is a great way to meet a lot of people and also to get my name out there. From a personal perspective, maybe the events have achieved their purpose (some concrete examples later this week, hopefully).
What do you think? I’ll have to think and see what this means for Lunch 2.0 and the other events I’m preparing…
