Wrapping up JSFAB Stockholm

Beatrice Martini · 21 October 2012

On October 13th, it was time to premiere one of our highlights in the the Swedish capital. The very first workshop we had as OTS, now organized on the same date in both Berlin AND Stockholm: JS for Absolute Beginners (JSfAB!).

Omnicloud HQ

The venue: the wonderful Omnicloud HQ in Gamla stan, the Old Town, just around the corner from the Royal Castle and with a spectacular view of the city.

Hanging out with OpenTechSchool Berlin

Full house, the first cup of coffee of the day, set up the ongoing Google hangout with Berlin, and we were ready to go.

Coaches coaching, learners trying out their first experiments with JS – so much enthusiasm in the air. Smileys coded on the screens and smiling faces when we get to the Swedish fika time (break and warm kanelbulle for everybody!). And then on for a whole day of coding and high fives. And we also had a special guest joining us: hej Henrietta from Rails Girls!

It was fantastic, and we can’t wait to organize more events in town.

Our warmest thank you to the Omnicloud team for the great venue, drinks and fresh fruit (bananas were the fruit of the day!), all our coaches, and Salton, the office cat. See you soon for the next workshop!
