The afternoon was dedicated to presentations ranging from Test Driven Development, Meta Programming in PHP to Fixing the Money Problem (yes, non-tech talks were also allowed and well received).
General hacking intermangled with occasional breaks for food (Thank you Spreeschnittchen!) went until 3:30. The late hours were fuelled by a steady stream of Club Mate drinks.
Sunday started a little slower but ended with a big announcement. The Soundcloud devs Eric and Henrik showed us what they starting to hack together over the course of the week and finished at DevHouseBerlin: TheCloudPlayer is a jQuery UI-based sort-of-clone of iTunes that lets you conveniently manage the music from Soundcloud in playlists and share these with friends. The UI looks stunning, works much like a native client (with keyboard shortcuts and drag and drop). The best thing is: It is open source.
Eric visited DevHouseBerlin on Saturday and immediately felt home (paraphrased):
I thought this is going to be a BarCamp-style event with lots of people chatting and talking. But when I got here, everybody was quietly hacking away, so I sat down and did the same and was happy to get some good stuff going. At the end of the day, I was sure to come back on Sunday.
In conclusion, DevHouseBerlin was great fun and well received. We are now thinking of doing it again on a quarterly basis. Let us know what you think. Follow DevHouseBerlin on Twitter for announcements and tag your stuff with #dhb and add your pictures to the flickr group.
