Beer, Tech and did I mention beer?

My good friend Enrico Signoretti organizes a great event named TechUnplugged. We started a couple of months ago in London and for those who want to know what was presented during the event, here is a link to the videos and the website: Video link and Website Link (and for those interested in the presentations in PDF format click here).

But as the title of the post suggests this post is mainly on BEER! and that’s because although it’s great to be informed and learn from some great people in the industry, it is also great to get to have a more informal meeting with each other. The evening before the event there will be a storagebeers in the Beer temple in Amsterdam!

Make sure you’ll join us and RSVP here!!!!

A big thanks to one of the sponsors of the event (which will be a day later) Tegile, who will pay the first two rounds!!!!

A new job at ITQ!

I’m proud to announce the next step in my career. As of January 2012 my new employer will be:

ITQ

About ITQ

10 years ago the founders of ITQ asked themselves the following question: Can’t it be better? more inspiring? And now they have answered that question: it’s possible indeed. They don’t believe in a profit driven business model. You should just concentrate on what your good at.

That’s how the ITQ employees do their job every day. They work as projectmanager or consultant and proof the filosophy of ITQ: If you build your company on passion, enthousiasm, collegiality and quality without concession, Success will always follow.

It’s really great to become part of such a great team!
