Hi all,

You probably know we’re organizing, since 2011 already, open Summer of 
code, where we hire up to 30 students to work on open source projects.

See http://2017.summerofcode.be if you wonder why you haven’t heard 
about this before :)

Today, we’re looking for students to hire! Thanks to OASIS, a 50% grant 
from the European Commission Open Knowledge Belgium received (check 
https://oasis.team), we will be able to hire a small team of students 
this year again on predicting how busy your train will be.

Data Beers Brussels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU16dT3TVAs

To that extent: if you’d be a student willing to join this team, we’re 
still looking for a front-ender/UX-er, looking for a transport 
scientist, a back-ender and maybe someone who want to take the lead on 
the communication strategy.


If you would be a company who would like to support iRail financially 
(we still only have 50% of the money needed for this team), please let 
us know as well! We’d love to talk to you whether we can add something 
that also suits your needs.


Kind regards,
