Week review

This week was a very busy and nice week for Cover members. First we had a KPN consultancy workshop, which I personally thought was super awesome and informative! On Tuesday we had a FirstyearCee activity: ZigZag. #childhoodmemories. The weather was amazing, so running throughout Groningen was no punishment, and after that it was perfect weather for a BBQ.

This Thursday we had the Made in Groningen symposium! We had an amazing disco lunch and had some really interesting talks. We learned a lot about comparing products at Belsimpel, discovering vunerabilities with HackerOne, mapping amateur archeologists findings with Geodienst and about sound and AI from SoundAppraisal. The symposium was so amazing even a girl from Amsterdam wanted to visit, but she couldn't attend (DUTCH)

Next week is also a busy week, so look at the agenda to see what you can do at Cover next week!
