Read more - Amsterdam / Munich

The series don’t seem to stop, and this time I want to announce two upcoming events in Europe.


The first in The Netherlands will be held on April 27th in Amsterdam. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a series of fun Dojo events bringing people from The Netherlands and around together, who work with Dojo, enjoy using Dojo and like everything around the Web.

As a special guest we will have both Dylan Schiemann (SitePen, Dojo Co-Founder) and Peter Higgins (Dojo Project Lead - aka phiggins), so if you want to meet the gurus of Dojo, make sure you will be there.

The event will be held at

De Balie
Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10
1017 RR Amsterdam

Start: 19:00


After the uxebu / SitePen Dojo training on May 8th, there will be a on May 9th in Munich. This is now the 4th or 3rd (after filtering by dojoBeerType ;) ) event in a series of interesting, content loaded events. Also in Munich we will have two special guests, Dylan Schiemann and Peter Higgins.

The event will be held at

Keltenring 11
82041 München, Oberhaching
