Last Friday started for me with friendly smiles of people who care about user-friendly solutions, which make our lifes better. I was happy to be among 60 attendees of the first UX Brunch Zürich 2015, organized by Valérie Vuillerat, Rahel Vils and Marc Steffen. Event took place in Impact Hub, which is known as a space with a good vibe. Being there is already enough to love the world around you even on an early Friday morning. But greeting and meeting people, who understand your challenges and the big meaning of those small victories on the way to great designs, is even better.

It's only lunchtime and we're already a bit excited! Tonight we're going to see another installment of the UX Chuchi and it's Amazee who's going to get grilled. We'll be presenting the draft of our new startpage, dashboard and a rough version of our new project setup process. Join us if you're in or round Zurich! More infos over here.
Alright, back from Basel we are! Saturday saw a great second StartupCamp Switzerland with almost 150 participants and great opportunities to exchange knowledge and network! I don't even know where to start, so I'll keep it short and give my impressions.
First of all I'd like to express my gratitude towards those who organized the event – even though one of them, Dania, usually sits right across from me. All of the organizational committee have done an outstanding job once again.
Tomorrow all of the Amazee team will be at Basel’s StartupCamp Switzerland!
Today saw the second installment of the Social Media Gipfel (Social Media Summit) in Zurich.
Monday evening was UX Chuchi time! The UX Chuchi is a regular meetup of Switzerland based Web User experience professionals and web startuppers. At each UX Chuchi we challenge the usability of the "victim's" website, and this time the victim was Supertext.ch! Remy Blättler introduced their website and the criticism actually wasn't even so bad ;)
It was a good night last night, with the 12th Web Monday Zurich going down at the LIIP/Nektoon office. More than 60 Web Monday attendees enjoyed the delicious mybagels and local Amboss (because it hits you like an anvil, if you have too much, I suppose, tongue-in-cheek) beer, white wine and prosecco.
Last night our friends from Politnetz.ch hosted the second installment of the Politforelle, or political trout, a somewhat regular meetup of those interest in Swiss politics and the Web.
Andreas of Politnetz, who had organized the event (thank you for that!), managed to find two very interesting guys to present: Moritz Zumbühl, CEO of the Feinheit agency and candidate for the Green Party in Zurich as well as Stefan Krattiger, a successful, young politician (how do yo
Amazee's second year has been an exciting one, and while things have cooled down a bit, the Amazee team is already heating up for a promising year to come:
Beginning of January we are going to release Amazee’s very first Customized Solution, based on Amazee's technology framework.
Okay, the headline is a big exaggerated, of course a conference like the current United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP15 as it is also known, must be held, but I seriously am of the opinion that a conference like this will not save the World.
It is perfectly clear that over the next years and decades drastic measures have to be taken in order to avert a climatic catastrophe that will probably change the way we (and all other beings, for that matter) live on this planet forever.
Last night we held another round of the Marketing Chuchi, one of the almost famous startup events where we grill one of our own by scrutinizing the routines and helping them tighten the screws. This time it was Oona's turn to burn.
She got a lot of steam, but she could very well take it.
