Back from Amsterdam and OHM

I’m back from a great week in the Netherlands, where I, in the company of good friends, visited Amsterdam and attended OHM. Before completing the lists of talks that I started in my previous post, I will share a few pictures.

Thomas and yours truly enjoying a beer at Café Captein & Co on Sunday, July 28:

It was one of the first beers that day, and it was the beginning of a small pub crawl…

Edward, yours truly and others (hmm, I don’t exactly remember who) getting ready for dinner with a 9.5% Westmalle at OHM on Friday, August 2:

Some of us visited the OHM lounge in the evening:

Thomas on the floor, Jacob and Kim on the couch. A very cozy place.

While waiting for dinner to be served at the camp site restaurant just outside OHM, we had some random, geeky fun:

The picture shows Jacob, yours truly, Thomas and Georg. Edward is behind the camera. It was on Saturday, August 3. Note the funny name of the beer – Texels Skuumkoppe. It is a local beer, as it is brewed on the island Texel.

Awesome and semi-awesome talks I attended at OHM:

Missed talks that I will watch later:

The video recordings from the tents are not processed yet, but the OHM guys have promised that they will be, in a not so distant future…

It feels good to be home again. I think I’ve socialized plenty for the time being and now I need some privacy. Also, I’ve missed my favorite music genre – metal. We have mostly been listening to pop and light rock in the car.

Let me end by mentioning that I find Amsterdam a lot more cozy and inviting than London. I compare Amsterdam to London, as I visited the latter in February. Do not forget to rent a boat and sail through the canals when you visit Amsterdam! It’s certainly worth it.
