Track: Xtra(ck)

Always nice to have a little Xtra fun!  We admit it: we have a kick-ass program. But Øredev also arranges all the parts that let you enjoy, re-energize, even relax while you learn. It also makes for better, easier network building. This year we boost the fun with a bonus activities track – the Xtra(ck) – running in parallel.


10:15 - 11:05

The taste of coffee

Or for a more hands-on approach, participate in a coffee tasting/workshop, during which you can sample different kinds and preparation techniques. Learn the difference and then let your taste buds enjoy all the hard work!

Mattias Sjöbäck

Mattias Sjöbäck is a self-professed “coffee nerd,” but with a rich depth of experience as a practitioner. He’s a professional coffee connaisseur, occasionally making guest appearances as a premium coffee missionary! “I want to explain, educate everyone on and even politicize the difference between just coffee and real coffee – in terms of its taste, origin, ecology, sustainability, transparency and trade conditions.”

music: the language of the eternal kinderkind

Music lifts our spirits. It can make us melt or hurl us into action.
But it also keeps us physically nimble and mentally supple. and you don’t have to be a musician to reap it’s benefits. It’s the language we are all born with. Music makes us better human beings. Using voice, with a healthy dose of laughter, this presentation will remind you that you are as young as you feel.
