Creating a Digital Community in Budapest

Budapest is a city with a very active digital presence in terms of meetups, events & socialising but there has not been a single platform that enabled quick and effective communication across the Digital Community.

Digital Budapest is our solution to this and at this moment is a free & open slack community for Digital Professionals living in Budapest. In the future Digital Budapest will offer much more to the community so keep an eye out for future announcements!

We launched the channel 1 week ago and without much effort we now have over 85 members from all areas of the Digital world such as UX experts, marketers, developers, project managers & more! It seems that we are not alone in thinking this network is a good idea.

#Channels

Currently there are 13 channels for you to get involved with. If you don’t know the benefits of Slack you can customise notifications to only be notified by channels and topics that interest you so that you don’t get too distracted from your work!

A selection of these channels are:

#introductions: drop in, say hello and share with us, who you are, what you do and why you joined the community. Don’t be shy, the community is very friendly!

#random: talk about anything! Share an amazing link, post a funny gif, tell us about your weekend plans or suggest going for a beer! Anything goes in #random!

#jobs: digital job opportunities. Are you looking for a job or a project to work on? JOIN US! Are you looking for a new employee or contractor? JOIN US!

Are you looking for a partner for a new project? JOIN US!

#coworking: Where are you working today? You can share your favorite coworking spots in Budapest & invite other Digital Budapesters to join you. Sometimes all you need to get motivated is to find the right company to work with.

Also share your experiences at coworking spaces to inform the community on the best places to be!

#events: One of the goals that we hope to achieve with Digital Budapest is providing information about the digital scene of Budapest eventwise. In Budapest there is always something happening and always something to do. We would like to make your life easier by providing one location to find out all the best events & gatherings.

#dev: Anything development related! Share your work, get help with coding problems, discuss angular 2 vs react and anything else dev related can be discussed here!

#marketing: Talk about marketing related topics, ask your questions and share your experiences with the marketing community of Budapest.

#ux: anything UX/UI related here. Get feedback on your latest project, find the most up to date information or simply talk to other professionals.

 

Sounds good, but why did you guys start this community?

Digital BUdapest join us

One of our biggest passions is connecting people. We wanted to create a free platform where we can build up a community of workoholic digital maniacs like ourselves, share our knowledge, opportunities or maybe just find someone to join us for a beer!
