    Henk Buursen is head of system administration since 2000.

    It all started with only three servers and a rented data line and has grown into a network at two locations connected by optical fibre and Wi-Fi. The original servers have been replaced by many work horses that monthly will capacitate tens of terabytes of traffic.

    Nowadays, Henk is also actively involved in teaching maker skills as tutor at Fablab Amsterdam and the Fab Academy.
