This article present a short overview of the public lectures, talks and other knowledge contributions from the ICT Institute team in 2018.

Open source contributions

At ICT Institute we are strong proponents of the idea of open and free knowledge sharing. Whenever possible we try to use open standards, open software and publicly available sources. We wish we could give back more. Two members have made contributions:

  • Sieuwert van Otterloo has also started uploading photos to Unsplash. Unsplash is one of our sources for freely usable photos (along with wikimedia, pexels and google search for creative commons photos).
