Berlin TechMeetups Weekly Newsletter Issue 06 Dec 2013

Dear Berlin TechMeetups members,

I am proud to inform you that this was eventful and a rather successful week for TechMeetups.

Our Guru programme in London has now finished and the students graduated. We sent them off proud with a certificate in hand and new knowledge to be wisely used. You can read how my colleague Victoria viewed it all here.

And there is also something little from my other colleague Mila – on how our first Startup/Developer SpeedMeetup event in London went. We are extremely happy with the turnout and the results. You can read more on how the event went here.

We have one more event next week, before we wrap up the year and go off to Christmas celebrations and mince pie overdose – Manchester Tips & Tricks on getting your MVP done, 11th December. It is a bit far for the Berlin crowd but if you have friends in Manchester, or you are going yourself up there next week make sure to check it out.
