The resources we use to find cafes with wifi good to work near us
You move to a new a new city, now you need a comfy place, with good food, has a decent internet connection, and to make it top notch also has power plugs everywhere, you say to your mirror: “magic mirror, where can I find a wifi cafe near me that is amazing to work?
Some of you may try to find blog posts about that, and in the big digital nomad cities that could work.
You still need to find the ones closer to you, which can only be achieved by a location based app.
Google maps has a lot of information but has no curation enough for our digital work needs, so we need something else.

If cafes are not enough for you, or if you like us want to mix your work time with some extra networking and events then finding co-workings spaces is the solution.
Another reason why we need to use co-working spaces too is the need to have a quite environment to teach our English classes. Most spaces have skype rooms which are perfect for the classes.
And for that the resources are plenty. Databases for co-working and even an unlimited pass that you can use freely in dozens of different countries.
