Read below some reviews about the 2022 edition ↓

It was great to get inspiration in a different country. There was a lot of nice masterclasses and a lot to learn. For me the best part of the bootcamp has nothing to do with what i was able to learn - for me the essential part of the bootcamp was the networking. I met people i visited afterwards and people i am still in contact with. This has no price.
