Ohai, a few devRanters (including me) have been working on planning a Dutch devRant meetup once again.

Although we're quite late with the "announcement", hereby!

It'll happen upcoming Saturday in Nijmegen (at least one German living person is coming as well and some people wanted to see it anyways so that's why).

Here's a collab edit thingy where you can put your name if you're coming!:
http://collabedit.com/wmj25 (yes, no https, I'm aware, I didn't chose this one but for now it works)

I'll mention some dutchies in the comments :)

Looking forward to upcoming Saturday :D

    I'm so happy to be invited to this! Unfortunately I'm in Germany next week, but depending on the time the meetup takes place at, I could take a train in the morning and leave in the early evening
  • 3
    @shinypotato I thought at about 5pm!

    Do let know, it'd be awesome to have you as well :D
  • 2
    I can't make it, unfortunately :( I have an event Saturday evening at 8p.m. and the train ride is ~3h, so this doesn't work for me, I'm sorry

    But I'm happy to attend any other further meetups, when there will (hopefully) be more in the future ^_^

    Enjoy!

    @shinypotato That's alright! We've also been taking about doing some next year so I'll be sure to let you know if/when we've got more meetup plans!

    Not sure if I'll be able to make it this time, as train tickets from Belgium to Nijmegen are kinda beyond my budget right now (buying a third server very shortly and so forth). Anyway, have fun! 😃
  • 2
    @Condor Thanks, will do! Also, what kinda server? 😊
  • 4
    @linuxxx a Supermicro of some sort. Comes with 16GB of RAM and a quadcore Opteron processor apparently. Some bloke in my area is selling it for €60 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Normally I would say: "sign me up!"
    But this time I signed up myself through collabedit 😄

    See you soon guys!

    @shinypotato What time would work for you? I'm discussing if people won't mind going earlier for one person (I personally wouldn't find this a big deal so yeah) :)
  • 2
    @linuxxx I'd be happy with meeting around midday, but please don't go out too much of your schedules just for me.
    Usually my schedule is pretty tight, so moving things around not too much in advance doesn't really work for me, so I expect such situations to happen :D
  • 2
    Sadly, I'm not able to attend anymore goddammit 😓
  • 2
    @karma What happened?
  • 2
    @linuxxx I had a reschedule of a family dinner ... totally bummed by this 🤦‍♂️

    I'd come from Germany. I just need to know if it's in English or Dutch 😅
  • 3
    @ThermalCube If what is in English or dutch? 😅
  • 3
    @ThermalCube we usually speak English
  • 3
    @ThermalCube @CoffeeNcode Oh, speaking language! Yeah usually English :D
  • 4
    @CoffeeNcode sounds good. My dutch is a bit subpar 😁

    On a sidenote: does anybody need a ride?
  • 3
    @ThermalCube You're coming? That'd be awesome :D
  • 2
    @Traser I saw you're dutch too. interested in a Meetup?
  • 1
    @ThermalCube Thanks for the upvote but it was actually a question 😅
  • 2
    I wish I could come :( would love to meet fellow dutchies of here, but unfortunately i got to work. I also kinda suck at dev knowledge and talks so id probably sit in a corner and be quiet :P perhaps next time?
  • 1
    @CoffeeNcode It's sounds awesome! But I already have something that weekend :/

    I hope you all have a nice meeting!
  • 1
    @SandervDoorn its not dev talk, its just talk which may contain some devtalk and cursing.
  • 2
    @linuxxx To answer your question yes I'm coming 😂😉
  • 1
    @ThermalCube Awesome haha, I saw you added your name to the list already 😁
  • 1
    Would love to come, would be about 30 mins cycling for me. But I'm not sure it's something for me (my English is really bad)
  • 0
    @RedPolygon That's up to you! At least I can translate if needed (even though I'm not a bragger, my English is very good), you can also come and if you don't like it, just go home again :)
  • 2
    @RedPolygon just come :) as linuxxx said if you dont like it you are free to go. Most of us are dutch, a few are german. Im sure you will be able to communicate with us xD
  • 3
    @Codex404 We could also just chain him to a table or something, then he can't go home 🤔
  • 2
    @linuxxx no we wont otherwise he wont come.

    (ofcourse will will but he cant know that)
  • 2
    @linuxxx @Codex404 Hahaha ok ok I'll come :) I can understand English, I just never speak it
  • 3
    @RedPolygon awesome! And let the English be the least of your worries, we can help where needed!

    @shinypotato cool! Good to know I am not alone 😂
  • 1
    @gintko As fond as I am of cultural differences, I'm not as fond of my native culture, so living here now makes things easier :D omw to learn Dutch, though
  • 1
    @shinypotato well, it’s something hard to learn dutch: you try to speak it and then they switch to english :D. Anyway, hope seeing you next Saturday, if you make it.
  • 2
    @gintko I won't, unfortunately, I won't be in the NL and train hours don't work for me and the meetup time. But enjoy, still! ^_^
  • 1
    @gintko @shinypotato try reading dutch comics! Great way to learn the language 😁

    @ThermalCube too bad youre too far up there a pickup would be amazing :D
    Sadly im living 20km south of Bocholt and driving over the rhine is a giant pain :(

    update from the meetup committee:
    I reserved a table at http://cafevanoudsnijmegen.nl/ from 4.30 to 8. I will be arriving there around that time. Look for the devDuck 😁
    if someone would like to be added to our Signal group chat or would like to be updated by text or otherwise, please feel free to send me your phone number to coffeencode@tutanota.com

    @ThatPerlDeb driving over the rhein is indeed a pain. Using a boat is easier :)
