World Hosting Days 2016 – Rust Germany

This year we went to the WHD with our Bulgarian partner ICN.bg and had a great time not just being geeks and talking about hosting, platforms and APIs but we also had a little fun too.

Never would I imagine to have the chance to meet Pelé which me being Brazilian was a major lifetime experience never to be forgotten!

The “fun and games” atmosphere of the event, that took place at Europa Park in Rust, gave us the chance to take a look at what others are doing and to better relate and understand what our customers and partners expect from us.

 

When parking is about fitting the square in the round hole

There are many places in the world where the cars are as numerous as the people living in town. Nice France has a tradition of putting cars into any conceivable spot available. Sometimes this means when you come out of a store you will find a car double parked and blocking you. Other times it means you find cars in all sorts of weird, if not hilarious positions.

I will never forget seeing this quite expensive BMW slammed in between a parking pole and another car. I measured, and there was exactly 3cm of clearance. Alas I never did see how that one pulled out. But I have been given the pleasure personally to have my car literally slammed and pushed (in realtime) to make room for a fellow citizen of the Côte d’Azur on more than one occasion.
