Estonia has to offer much more than we can fit into the program. We have organized some extra events for you so you can get the most out of your trip to Estonia.
Trip to the countryside | Aug 28-29
Estonia’s air is among the cleanest in the world, and the freedom to roam is codified in law. Let's hike and pick berries in a bog or a forest, or sit still and take inspiration from the sounds of nature. After a hearty Estonian dinner there is no way you can return home without having tried Estonian sauna.
The trip will start on August 28 noon from the hotel and end on August 29 noon, just a few hours before the official start of the conference.
NB! This is an overnight extra event with accommodation in the countryside included, so keep this in mind when booking the hotel.
Aug 28 12.00 - Aug 29 12.00 (max 20 participants)
Daytrip to Tartu | Aug 29
Get out of Tallinn for a day to enjoy Estonia’s second largest city Tartu, which is mostly known to be the university city, but also has cool startups to get to know of.
The day will begin with a short walk to the Central Station to catch the train to Tartu where we will visit Nevercode and Upside Down House. The trip will include lunch and a bit of free time to relax and enjoy your time in the town. We will be back in the hotel just in time to get ready for the opening night of the conference.
Upside Down House is a dizzying adventure for everybody – grown-ups and children. They literally have turned the house upside down. Upstairs is downstairs and vice versa.
Nevercode helps mobile app developers build better apps faster. Nevercode has built a cloud-based continuous integration service that automates the key steps in the development process — building, testing and distributing.
Aug 29 8.00 - 17.00 (max 28 participants)
