Foojay Podcast #30: UtrechtJUG

On September 12th, I was invited to speak at the Utrecht JUG together with Hanno Embrechts.

That was an ideal moment to grab my camera and microphones to interview the organisers and some of the guests.

So, this is a bit of a special edition of the Foojay Podcast as it’s also available with video!

An experiment that brought me great pleasure. I hope you like it too!

So… let’s time travel and get back to Utrecht when I got the organizers before the camera just minutes before the first guests arrived!
