(Chiara) #7

(Martin Stadler) #8

Changed the time in the text.


(Chiara) #9

Er… only 2 signups? Does it make sense to book?

@xMartin your charm is needed to keep this thing running lol


(Nicco Kunzmann) #10

I want to come, too. We will host Workshops at the CEBIT and I would like to talk about OpenTechSchool involvement.


(Julia) #11

Mar and Me from NodeSchool Berlin will join to discuss a possible Collaboration with OTS.


(Chiara) #12

Cool! Can we have some Frontend coaches coming to discuss about it? @xMartin, @anaketa


(Kiyumars) #13

Change of plans: Could not get a table at Koutaki, so we should go to the Indian restaurant Guru, which is directly opposite the Südstern station. The address is [30 Kortestr][1]. I’ve reserved a table for six, though it appears from the comments that I should perhaps be increased to 8?

@chiara, @anderspree, @niccokunzmann, @xMartin, @ellen

(ellen) #14

Unfortunately I can’t make it


(Julia) #15

Ok I updated my Kalender and informed Mar. We will still be there.


(Martin Stadler) #16

@chiara since when can i be charming? :wink:

Background info: I’m in touch with the NodeSchool Berlin folks for a while now about collaborating so I invited them to join us for dinner :slight_smile: (Oooh, first date :smiley: I guess I can be charming…)

@bastianalbers said he’d be joining, too, right?


(Chiara) #17

@xMartin lol :grin:


(bastianalbers) #18

Yes, i’ll also come. Not sure if i can be on time, maybe i have to get some stuff done at home before i can join, but will definitely come.


(Andreas) #19

A different meeting has been canceled so I can join, too \o/


(Kiyumars) #20

I’ve bumped up the table at Guru’s to 8-10 people. The name is under ‘Open tech’. Just a reminder, we are meeting at the Indian restaurant Guru, not the greek Restaurant To Koutouki.

Exciting! Shouldn’t we do a blog post or something about that? That is really great (for them but also for OTS)!
