Next Open Coffee: 5th October

Open coffee is on again on 5th October at KC Peaches on Nassau Street from 10am. As usual, we’ll be there until around noon.

KC Peaches

KC Peaches is located at 28/29 Nassau Street, very close to the Pearse Street DART station and Grafton Street, so it’s easy to get to. Their coffee, pastries and food are all fantastic and healthy, too! KC Peaches also provides free Wi-Fi via Bitbuzz for your first 20 minutes in the cafe. We’re usually downstairs and in the room to your left.

There are a couple of free slots for anybody who wants to talk about upcoming events or demo projects they’re working on. Please get in touch or leave a comment below if you’re interested in demoing or talking. If you’re demoing, kindly remember that we don’t have an overhead projector or anything, so it’s very informal and best kept to about five minutes or less.

Thanks and see you on Oct 5th!

May OpenCoffee Recap

Big thanks to everyone who turned up to Open Coffee on Friday.

There were two interesting demonstrations from new services. The first was Rescuez – these guys are trying to help people find their lost items, helping charities along the way. Check out their video.

Also showing off his new service was Vinny from SeenBefore. This application allows you filter your searches to sites that you have previously visited.

If there is anything I forgot to mention email me and I will update the post.

April OpenCoffee Recap & A Request

Many thanks to everyone who came along to OpenCoffee Dublin today, we had a great turnout!

Thanks to Ann from Yelp, Robert from ZenDoc, and Mairead from Success Teams for talking about their organizations with us, and to all the new faces.

If you have updates or info you’d like to share, please email me or post it below and I’ll do a bigger follow-up. I know there was interest in Ann’s event over the May bank holiday and some people looking to hire folks as well.

In other news: I am sad to announce that this is the last month that I am running OpenCoffee Dublin. It’s not a huge time commitment, but I am working and travelling a lot due to my startups and need someone else who can be here more regularly and keep it going.

Running OpenCoffee is not a lot of work, but it’s been one of the best experiences I’ve had in Dublin. I have had the opportunity to meet loads of bright and interesting people who have helped me and my companies very much.

If you find OpenCoffee Dublin useful and would like to help it continue, please get in touch at martha [at] opencoffeedublin.com. It’s really just updating twitter and the blog regularly and letting KC Peaches or other venues know when we’re showing up.  I’m hoping that a couple of people will step up so that you can help each other and help OpenCoffee continue to grow and assist the tech community of Dublin.

Thanks for your continued support & interest, hope to see you at the next one!
