Hi Hanna!

I am Anna, also from the Netherlands :) Welcome to the group!

I live in Utrecht and work as a software engineer (but I studied physics,
not CS, which means if you want to be buried in maths I can get you sorted
;-) ).

I will also be helping out with the Harvest project Svetlana mentioned,
although I currently have a few 'real-life' things going on which mean I
don't have much private time :(



Less is like more, but better.
