March @ ONLINE_ONLY

Posted on March 18, 2020

You probably heard about Corona, no not the beer, the virus. Of course we like organizing and hosting meetups but we also care about everyone's health. It's therefore that we together with ABN AMRO have decided to postpone the upcoming meetup on Wednesday 18 March 2020. ABN AMRO have agreed to host a meetup later this year.

Furthermore, we are excited that ABN AMRO has extended their sponsorship of CocoaHeadsNL for another year. Our financial sponsors make it possible for us to buy equipment, rent locations, buy food/drinks and host our own meetups like the WWDC Viewing Party and our annual Christmas event.

Instead of a regular meetup on Wednesday 18 March 2020, we have decided to turn it into our first online-only streaming meetup. Instead of attending physically, you can only attend online on our regular YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/stichtingcocoaheadsnl) and watch the live stream. We will even open the YouTube chat and possibly a Slack channel to ask questions to our speakers. We spoke to Jon Reid who was in the Netherlands for a workshop about test driven development to be the first to... well test it.

We are still working on the details but we plan to have two presentations as normal with the first to start at the regular time of 19:00 hrs CET on Wednesday 18 March 2020. You can only attend online or watch the edited videos afterwards. There will be no opportunity to join at the venue of the live stream.

The second speaker has yet to confirm to us if he wants to speak at this online-only steaming meetup. In case he prefers to speak at a later meetup we will only have one presentation. This might be a nice opportunity to watch one or more presentations of our previous meetups in our tvOS app: https://itunes.apple.com/nl/app/cocoaheadsnl-tv/id1343015172?mt=8

At the moment our meetup for April is still on the calendar and we will keep you posted about that and future events as soon as possible.

Looking forward to seeing you all tuning in or at our other meetups soon!
Bart, Jeroen, Jolanda and Marco
