Barcelone - Nice way at Antibes station

You should come if…

  • You want to follow your two feet.
  • You want to work on a train.
  • You want to meet people.
  • You are welcoming.
  • You are curious.

You should not come if you want to receive training to become digital nomad. There will be no teachers, only attendees  :)

What we will talk about

Materials and best practices

  • Connectivity: phone plans and devices.
  • Bags: what to take and what to carry.
  • Accommodation: exchange, rental, hotel, hostel, friends …
  • Cooking without a kitchen.
  • Projectors and secondary screens.
  • Wifi proxy.
  • MOSH (Mobile Shell).

Great Thoughts

  • Is the term “nomad” pertinent?
  • Is the term “open” the most relevant?


  • FriendlyPlaces: collaboratively referencing spaces that are welcoming and compatible with our practices.
