Join us for a weekend of classes and events celebrating the marriage of technology and craftsmanship in Berlin. We have the the city’s most prominent artisans and tech experts to educate emerging entrepreneurs on how to leverage technology to grow their businesses and expand their craft. And we gonna party!

Einige Kurse werden auch in deutscher Sprache stattfinden.

We have on the program:


Featuring leaders from innovative companies, this panel discussion explores how new processes and technologies can further the growth of artisanship and craftsmanship.


Explore how current e-commerce solutions, social media tactics, and PR strategies can help you strengthen your craft and expand your business.


Learn a range of hands-on skills and techniques to add dimension and shape (literally) to your practice.


Be sure to bring your tanzen shoes to the betahaus courtyard for drinks, DJs and plenty of fun. Join us for an epic spring block party in the heart of Kreuzberg on Saturday April 27th 10pm until 4am, and get ready to rock the haus!

Check out the full program and reserve your slot via this link or rsvp via facebook.

Toni: Honestly, we have skillsets that you don’t usually find in developers. Because we've had lives that were not just about computer science. I think to some extent this is what makes us different. 

Martin: I believe one of the reasons why people pick us over other studios is because it can be very hard working with developers. If you’re not understanding their work, if the communication is not flowing, you, as a client can feel lost. We're easy to communicate with and we’re always open to feedback and we're open to discuss anything. In the end, after all iterations, if you say we need to start the website from scratch and that you don’t like the idea, we won’t take it personally. 

Alex: Also, I think, since we all work as coding teachers, we are officially qualified to explain what coding is to people who don't code, which is actually really rare because a lot of developers, as Martin says, don't want to, or literally just don't know how to articulate what they're doing. Whereas we are trained in articulating what it is that we're doing, why it's meaningful and why it takes a certain amount of time.

Alex: Zimt & Mehl - the Turkish bakery around the corner. It’s just soo good.

Martin: Oh, there is this Italian restaurant called Ristorante del Arte

Tony: Oh, my God, this place is so funny. It looks like a pretty average Italian restaurant, but the whole interior design inside is just decorated in such a weird way. The entire place is covered in frescoes. They have crystal chandeliers and Easter bunnies. Some Greek columns. It has a different name on the menu, on the side and on the Internet. And it was an ex-shoe-store.
