Re: Doc Sprint Amsterdam

Thanks for the responses.
Is someone willing to write a blog post on The
blogpost on the Fronteers website will be online tomorrow.

I'm aslo working on an Eventbrite page and I've basically copied Jay's
version for Berlin and altered a few things.

Can someone please check if this is correct? Thanks!
