  • Sybren works as software developer at Blender HQ. His roles there are project lead of the Animation 2025 project, and module coordinator of the Animation & Rigging module. He also worked on the render farm management software Flamenco, and on USD/Alembic integration.

  • Paul Melis works at SURFsara, the Dutch national supercomputing center, as lead of the visualization group. The group supports Dutch scientific researchers and users of the Dutch national high-performance computing infrastructure with visualization of 3D simulation models and abstract data.

  • I am using Blender since 2010 at least, finally switching from Cinema 4D when Blender 2.5 was introduced. Today, I try to use it for almost any task, from the usual 3D tasks when creating virtual models to video editing and 3D printing. I love to teach Blender, that's why I fulfilled my personal wish to become a BFCT in May 2016. My main focus is teaching Blender to students at university. Howeve…
