You are not as unique as you think you are – and that’s ok!

xkcd pictures my line of thought perfectly with this cartoon. You just cannot read someone else’s mind.

When I have a problem or difficulty with something, I often (incorrectly) assume that I’m one of the few persons that has this problem. But after a number of experiences I realized that you and me are probably not so different after all. And that’s totally fine!

This means that when you have a problem, you are probably not the only one. “Of course!” you might say. “People have been saying that for years.”  While that’s completely true, I however only recently started to really experience this myself and want to share my thoughts with you.

A brief opinion on digital notes

During the first few days of the new year at university, some freshmen told me about their first course given by Professor Erik Duval (One of my former professors). Apparently professor Duval was completely amazed by the fact that there was not a single student with a laptop or tablet instead of plain old paper. I don’t think that was a coincidence. Laptops and tablets are just not quite fit (yet?) to really replace paper. However, I’ve had a surprisingly pleasing experience when studying on a tablet last year.

The KU Leuven needs an API

I’ve been a student at the KU Leuven for almost three years now. My university delivers
various online services on our online “interactive” “learning” environment called Toledo.
These services include our daily schedule, exams, email, course documents, information, discussion groups. A lot of students (including this one) moan a lot about how Toledo is slow and user-unfriendly.  If Toledo is ever to be redesigned, I have some suggestions.

First Belgian Clojure meetup debriefing

clojure-welcomeLast week (27th of march 2013) it was a big day for me and for the belgian clojure community  (or so I hope): The first ever clojure meetup in Belgium had taken place!

The event itself was a great success (if I’m allowed to say so) and I certainly had a lot of fun. A week later I thought it might be a good idea to look back.

So here is a short debriefing about how thing went.
