Codeyard 2008

Codeyard is a project of the RU to stimulate high school students for Free and Opensource Software in the Netherlands. Primarily they offer hosting and guidance for setting up projects. They also organize (great!) monthly meetings at the university where participants meet.

To motivate people to join, they organize a yearly award sponsored by Capgemini for the best project. With a friend, Noud, and my brother Bram we participated in their first year (2006) and won the award. This year, I have the honor to join as a member of the jury.

If you’re interested, you can visit one of the “community days”. The next one is this Saterday. There will also be a presentation by the people who cracked the “OV-kaart”, which should be quite interesting.
