#iSoc12 The end of three kick ass weeks.
Hi there! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us. Are you missing our daily posts already? Well, the epic iRail Summer of Code 2012 has come to an end. It were three awesome weeks. We all got the chance to meet interesting and likeminded people, get the hang of new things, speak other languages (and code) and learn about ourselves. At the beginning, we all had one thing in common: we wanted to build something great and go for it. I think this turned out really well.
Friday the 20th of July, the last day of iRail Summer of Code was a fact. The day started out great: finally our t-shirts arrived. We all looked splendid—don’t you think? I had so much fun designing it! We got to finish the projects that day, and everybody helped each other out. At four o’clock, it was time to present what we had been doing the past three weeks. Not everybody delivered a finished project, but that doesn’t matter. Every single project learnt us something new or created new opportunities. It’s the journey, not the destination! Maikel, Sander and Toon came over to have a look and a chat. Thanks for that, great to have you guys over!
For me, three weeks seemed way too short. I could’ve gone on all Summer (even a year!) without losing my smile. Thanks for the opportunity, Pieter & Yeri. You guys are doing something wonderful …
