IT According to Christophe VG

Informatica maakt al 30 jaar een belangrijk deel uit van mijn leven. Deze categorie bevat notities, samenraapsels van allerlei aard; vooral dingen die ik ergens een onderkomen wil geven zodat ik er altijd aan kan.

Ik starte met deze structuur van de website in 2010, en veel van de inhoud stamt zelfs nog van voordien (mijn domein verscheen online in het jaar 2000). Zeker in deze sectie vind je nog pagina’s van lang vervlogen tijden. Ik hou ze vooral voor “old times’ sake” ;-) Niet alle informatie is dus up-to-date met de huidige stand van zaken mbt de topics. Je weze gewaarschuwd ;-)
