Making contact with other tech co-ops outside of the UK?


#46

yes, the discourse is hosted by FACTTIC. I’m not sure if the non public messages are due to an ICA policy, but I think that we can modify that if it’s necessary… maybe your experience with this forum could help on the discussion


#47

Alex, I guess you are aware of SMart, would be interested in your view of how they are organising tech freelancers or how tech people are using its platform?


#48

Hi @Sion,

I know about them, but I haven’t a clear idea of how they operate.
However I know several belgium freelancers, members of the Happy Dev network, who were part of Smart a few years ago.

I can ask them if you want.
What do you want to know exactly ?

Hi @polly @chris
Do you have any email, Telegram user or something to be in contact tomorrow for the call? Please let us know…

We prepared a little video with greetings from all the coop as a presentation before we enter to the call…

:wink:

@solverniers @Neto We didn’t get to make something as impressive as yours, but we made a little video to say hello when we finished our event:

Hope the G20 protests went really well.

I thought you might be interested to know more about Founders and Coders who are a code-school that’s part of our network: https://foundersandcoders.com/

Keep in touch, I’m looking forward to seeing how this relationship develops :slight_smile:

Hi everyone !

Alex From Happy Dev speaking.
We translated our manifesto in english so that you guys could read it.
We would love to actually share a common manifesto with CoTech.
We believe it could be a first step to cooperating more together, on top of the few clients’ projects that are in the pipeline now.

What would you change to make it yours ?
Fell most welcome to comment, here or on the document itself.

One more thing : we open an english speaking #international-cooperation channel on our chat.
If you’d like to join, just ping me and I invite you in.

All the best !

I would like to join…maybe @Neto is also interested in this channel…

best
