Happy to see a place like this!
I’m a System Engineer (i’m not the grumpy type of sys admin no worries) working with a complete remote team on our fully opensourced hosting system (amazee.io). I live in Zurich, Switzerland and attend and speaking at a few conferences or meetup every year. I totally understand all the feelings that can haunt you during conferences. Let’s make this better together by already having a few friends that know the confernces - everything is better with having a few buddies!
Me & Conferences?
I helped bootstrap a few conferences already (e.g. Frondend Conf Zurich), worked in programme teams (many DrupalCons) or hauled gear around for the conferences or gatherings i organized (TEDxBern, Winterkongress of digiges.ch , Free Openair Cinema in my City)
