Hello Geek World

<Hello Geek World/> I’m David, a member of the team DataScouts. I wasn’t chosen through oSoc selection process so I hacked my way into it. So I pleaded my own case with Dries and Pieters, coaches at #oSoc17. I told them the following: I recently graduated with a bachelor degree in Software Engineering. I am highly […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Contemplations of the #oSoc16 experience

Good old memories… of last week I remember it profoundly. Exiting the train station of Brussels North, the fresh wind wholeheartedly introducing the monster high fancy buildings. Clean and open space led to the various entrances of the monumental glass castle towers, one of which expected me among the 23 other students. Fear and uncertainty awaiting […]

Two years as part of #oSoc’s wolfpack

Hi, my name is Christophe, but people tend to call me Batteman (not to my dislike), and I’m working with team CultuurConnect along with Sander and Hanna (which you’ve already read about), and a whole bunch of people you’ll get to meet in the coming weeks. You might remember me from last year posts (1 […]

#oSoc16: Open Summer of Emotional Rollercoasters

Hi, I’m Arne, and I work as a project and communication manager for Spitsgids. (I’ve cemented this sentence into my mind for whenever someone tries to finger-gun me in the hallway thinking I’m unprepared). At Spitsgids, we are going to predict how crowded your train will be, so you can leave earlier or later to […]
