Office hour: Programming&coding!

d:evolute is a software web agency, specialized on Ruby on Rails development. They develop business applications: custom, test-driven and scalable web applications, online social media solutions and whitelabel solutions for startups. d:evolute exists since 2011 and has 10 developers with about 10 years of experience. They are holding office hour’s “code & programming” every second Wednesday at betahaus.

We proudly present our new office hour! The good folks from d:evolute offer to help you out with all the questions you ever had about coding. From 'How do I even talk to developers if I dont understand what they do?' to 'What do you think about my new webapplication? Beautiful, right?' Every second wednesday at betahaus you will get the answers..

To introduce them, their work and mission to you we got them to answer a couple of questions for us. Read the full interview after the jump.

What is your aim with »code and programming«?

Our initiative is having the workshop here at the betahaus, where the founders can learn programming code by themselves, with the technologies they use and the standards we have. We want to enhance the relationships between developers and founders and to collaborate with the startups. We want to help them with their ideas and to improve the clients business model from a more technical perspective.

You are code experts. What are the issues that you want to help with, and who are your clients?

Our clients are classical enterprises, startups and communication agencies. Our developers are responsible for the collaboration between the clients, getting the concept and realizing it. We help to build professional web applications with focus on Ruby on Rails and Sinatra. We also do Drupal and Frontend development. We work a lot for startups and help them with the problems they usually have: how to recruit people, if they need to hire an agency or external freelancers. We try build up the team and give them advice if they will be able to exist for the next few years.

Why did you decide for betahaus and to help people here?

We like the atmosphere here in the betahaus. We have already talked with Christoph (co-founder) before , we know them for a while. In betahaus there are a lot of people with great ideas and we also like development with a mixture of international people. Help them exchange the experiences. So we are looking forward to any kind of feedback and if someone has specialized technical questions we also can help you. If you are interested or need help: we are here in betahaus every second wednesday. It is good for us to know who is coming. We recommend you to write us first. Than we know exactly who is the right person to help you.

From 8pm on, we'll open The Club where the DJ booth and the dance floor will turn into our playground. We've invited hip hop and pole dancers to open the dance floor and have a friends-only crazy-cool lineup planned for the night. We'll be mixing botanical cocktails with Fritz Cola and inviting you into our Photo Booth Room so you can take home some silly photos from the night. In The Club, you will also find The Balloon Room and The Zen Zone which will be our chill spot for the night. Check out the timeline in The Club and learn more about The Zen Zone below.

Make sure to join our Facebook Event and RSVP on Eventbrite, so we can put your name into our Happiness Jar. This birthday bash is all about our community, and together with our partners we've prepared a special Prize Draw.

Throughout the whole night, you will find the rooms of The Basement filled with art pieces from our favorite Berlin-based creatives. From illustrations to paintings to wooden sculptures and installations - we've made sure to host an inclusive Berlin-like mix of all things art. Let us introduce to you to some of the artists, who you will meet down in The Basement:

Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.

From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.

In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.


In our Photo & Video room you will find works from Collette Pomerleau and Ocean.Now.

Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.

Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!

In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.

Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.

Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.

We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.



Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
