GadgetFriday! Home of the beer drinking Nerd since 1995

Welcome to our little village. Welcome to GadgetFriday, home of the beer drinking nerd!


Events at SHA2017

  • GadgetFriday on Friday August 4. Time: t.b.a. Come and show us your Gadgets and bring us your beer!
  • Gadget Friday Release Party Tessellation 2.0 for iPhone and Android Devices

What we do

We love soldering, drinking beer, hacking stuff together with Arduino's, sensors and shields, and programming.

Because we're old now some of us have ancient l33t skills like: Z80 assembly, 6502 assembly, C, Perl, Tcl/Tk, ASF+SDF, Prolog.

The young and dynamic among us are trying to learn new things like: Mining bitcoins (duh!), tinkering with raspberry pi, coding in VHDL or Verilog, playing with docker containers.

And the very very young (next generation) only do stuff like: Watching Nickelodeon, watching Youtube-vlogs (vlogs about shoes, nail polish, hair, boys etc), sleep, play with Lego Friends (TM), make selfies, chat, shop. The usual girl-nerds do.

Where to find us

On SHA2017 you can find our Gadgeteers in the big army tent on the Olsen Field field.

How to contact us

  • Call us on DECT 4142
  • Come by the tent
  • Mail us: GNF at
  • Leave a comment on the wiki in the comments section.

The Website

The website is currently down because... well it just is. The location was


We held our first gathering in Amsterdam in 1995 and then started gathering every 1st friday of the month until everybody moved elsewhere or started a family and had kids. We've been reuniting at HAL2001, WTH2005, HAR2009, OMH2013 and now SHA2017.

Who we are

Well that remains a bit of a mystery. Some of us studied together at the University of Amsterdam Faculty of Science (FNWI and WINS). Some of us were friends of friends or colleagues of friends. Some of us just showed up one day.

Also, we are the founders of the Frank4(F4)-standard for avatars which is a JPG-format of 383 x 207 pixels and the person who contemplated and coined the term "Martijnisme".
