Betahaus | Actually

Brace yourselves - Christmas is coming!

Our current mission is to get you Christmas-ready. We'll do it with plenty of possibilities to complete your gift-list, stuff your winter belly with lots of waffles and Gluehwein, and get you into that love-is-all-around-me-vibe by providing you with a variety of social mixers with interesting people.

Our line-up consists of:

- Free DIY workshops to make presents for your dear ones (or yourself)

- Sinterklaas Community Party + Awesome Award

- DIYmonds MARKET

- betahaus | vouchers: the ultimate gift-idea

More infos about each and every single one of them

 

FREE OF CHARGE WORKSHOPS - December Series @ o2 Live Concept Store

Within our December Series, we will hold 3 free of charge workshops for you. Each of them is supposed to hit 2 aims with one bullet: introduce you to a specific craft or design field and get an awesome Christmas present as a result.

Pick up what's yours and join in. Sadly, the number of places is limited, so first come first served.

- IPhone Case Design

- Christmas Tree Bubbles

- Eat Design

- SINTERKLAAS PARTY -

This is our community gathering. We would like all the coworkers to grab a Gluehwein and waffle in good company and enjoy the evening together. Among other funky actions, you can expect the Awesome Award and the Secret Coworking Santa reveal. The “Secret Santa” is  for all the coworkers who would like to receive some special Christmas care and give some too. You are very welcome to join in! Just drop by reception, they'll fill you in on all the details. Another highlight is the DIY WORKSHOP: YOUR GLOVES ARE BORING, during which you can create gloves that allow you to use your touchscreens without having to take them off! In addition to making them functional, you can also embellish them however you please and thus make a fantastic personalized present for someone special.

- DIYmonds MARKET-

Come around to betahaus on December 14th if you’re up for an unconventional, interactive bet(t)a Christmas Market. Find a special christmas present for your friends or family, hand-crafted by selected artists, get creative and make one yourself (we will hold a Christmas Special MAKE AFTERNOON for it!). Obviously, besides all 'unconventionalism', you'll be still more than welcome to have a hot drink with your friends and simply enjoy the pre-Christmas atmosphere.

- betahaus | VOUCHERS -

Since we already got several requests for it, we decided to launch it officially.

We have produced beautifully designed vouchers which a lucky receiver can use for absolutely any course or workshop from the betahaus| Education program. At the moment, we have more than 10 different education directions - from 3D printing up to Fashion Design and PR, so they´ll have a wide selection. The vouchers will be valid up until the end of March, so there's enough time for deciding on the right course. Moreover, if they wish, the voucer could also be used for renting coworking spaces at betahaus.

If your nearest and dearest are hungry for knowledge people, willing to explore something new and to try something unknown, the voucher is there to make your pre-christmas life easier.

That's it, hope you enjoyed the list. If you have any questions about any of the happenings, just drop a line to reception@betahaus.de

Be motivated, be inspired and be there - or be square!

Toni: Currently, we’ve somehow ended up in this niche of building a lot of internal tools for startups and teams. But this is not the only thing we want to do. What I like about it is that we’re starting projects from scratch and we have full control over them. 

Martin: The first project we worked on was a tool for a large scale real estate development company. What they needed was a tool for their Sales people - to be able to mark their different spots and locations at different stages of the sales funnel. So we created a tool that helps them in this process.

Toni: And this one actually served as a starting point for the tool we’ve developed for  betahaus, which aims to allow the Sales and Management team to see which team rooms are occupied right now, which ones are free or will be occupied in a few weeks or months, so no double bookings appear. 

Alex: These two projects were more focused on real estate, let’s say, but we’ve also done more design-heavy projects like the one we did for Artique which is an online artists agency. For them, we built a whole website and an online system to present their artists starting only from their logo. It had to be very flexible, because the artists needed to be able to edit their own profiles, putting their resume, changing colours.



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.
