Thank you very much!

Cod­ing Dür­er has been a dream once. Then it has been a third-par­­ty fund­ing project. Then an orga­ni­za­tion­al knot to untan­gle. And then it became true. For­get­ting the sweat, I am very very hap­py about the process and out­come of Cod­ing Dür­er. Plus: Noth­ing went seri­ous­ly wrong. A project like this wouldn’t be pos­si­ble without […]
