Hello, I'm Laurens Slats, a community specialist. The past years I was responsible for the community behind one of the world’s largest IoT networks: The Things Network. Within 5 years the community grew to 150 000 developers and one of The Netherlands' biggest Open Source projects.
I'm passionate about connecting people who share a common interest for innovation, technology and open source. I have experience with managing online Forums, hosting physical events up to 1500 and virtual events up to 5000 visitors, optimizing developer experiences, creating ambassador groups and setting up education & certification platforms.
