A lot has changed since then, but our core values have always remained the same – combining great fashion with the latest technology and exceptional customer service.

We love to share our passions, insights and expertise for technologies and topics we love through 100+ self-organised guilds, internal tech talks, training initiatives, demos, local meet-up events, conferences and more.
