Walking in the forest of knowledge

Walking in a forest of knowledge Hello! My name is Pieter-Jan Geeroms, member of #TeamMobylink (front-end / back-end developer) and first time oSoccer. Together with Haroen Viaene and Lisa Debontridder we’re promoting linked data. I’m pretty sure by now everyone knows what linked data is. Don’t worry if you don’t! You can always check out […]

A human guide to understanding developers

DISCLAIMER: I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings at all. I’m actually a very sweet and loving guy (totes). So, I am a graphic designer with some background in digital design and rather little background in development. Even though I have worked together with plenty of developers, I still have moments where I feel like […]

From outsider to insider

Hi, my name is Eva and I’m an 18 year old Devine student @ Howest. Together with Tjen, Laurens and our coach Sander I’m working on the VIAA project (if you want more information on our project you should check their blog posts here and here). I’m pretty sure I’m the youngest participant in open Summer […]

A final coding day tale

Hello there all of you readers, Jasper reporting for blogpost writing duty. You probably know quite a bit about open Summer of code right now, but have you ever heard about the horror of the final coding day? Actually it is not that bad at all, it’s just some students racing to get the job done […]

Brace yourselves the end of oSoc16 is coming!

Hi My name is Miguel, I don’t have a cool nickname or alter ego so I just keep it with Miguel. I work as back-end developer in the LD-Works team with Umut and Sander.

An #oSoc project: From baby to adult.

Hi there, I’m Stan. A 22-year-old freshly graduated full-stack developer. But right here, at #oSoc16, I am the back-end developer (for the second year) of the Spitsgids team. A project that tries to predict how busy your train will be. That’s what I want to talk about in my blog post. Not about Spitsgids itself, […]

It’s all about the feedback

Besides having a really good time meeting lots of people who are overwhelmingly talented, I try to drive the process of user research together with the designer-squad Bruce, Niels and Hanna. But I also try to catch a glimpse of the code (aka back-end boys Thibault, Angrymoustache and Jasper + front-end Batteman and Huseyin) although […]

Life of (linked data) Alumni at #oSoc16

Welcome My name is Umut. And I’ll start first about the first week that went blazingly fast. Starting at day one, I had to wake up early at 7 a.m. Got to pick the train fast from Gent-Sint-Pieters to Brussel-Noord. Once arrived at the Selor office, we got a nice introduction from PJ and Lara what everyone will […]
