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.
Last night I had the rather pleasant task of attending the kick-off meeting of the Hub Zurich group. The Hub started out as an idea in just a few minds, last night, however, showed that it is an idea well-received by the social entrepreneur scene of Zurich.
Some of you might know it: We regularly go on team retreats to the beautiful town of Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland. Usually we spend the weekend together with various in- and outdoor activities (this time it was merely long strolls and a short swim) and afterwards work for two and a half days on the future of Amazee, reviewing and readjusting strategies and tactics.
This weekend "Amazee science" feat. Ana is in Berlin at the PolitCamp10. A two-day conference where politics meets the internet community. The schedule looked very promising including sessions around the topics of data security, politics and Web 2.0, e-participation, campaigning on the internet and more.
The Web Mondays in Zurich are really becoming a capacity test for startup offices: Last night about seventy Web worker, Upstarts and young entrepreneurs attended the 13th installment of Zurich's most important meetup for small Internet-related business.
Last Friday Amazee launched its second customized platform, Intergeneration.ch. The President of the Swiss National Council Pascale Bruderer Wyss is the patron of the new platform that aims to connect generations. Or in her own words:
As most of our blog readers will know, Amazee is working on a major redesign (startpage, dashboard, project setup). Yesterday night we presented the first prototype to our UX Chuchi colleagues. And if you've been at an UX Chuchi before, you'll know: the feedback round was toughly instructive and after three hours of sweatshop style scrutinization we had a bag full of condensed change requests. A big thank you to all collaborators - again I'm amazed how much value the UX Chuchi has brought to our product development - bit of a UX Gucci indeed (quotation Rupert). Find some pics over here
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.
