Here is the TL;DR bullet list:
  1. To help others (and possibly gain IRL Karma points).
  2. To train/gain/increase/improve my experience, knowledge, patience and user support skills, in a way that no PhD or academic course could ever do.
  3. To feel accomplished, in a way similar to playing video games:
    • If I can do this task, I can do other tasks as well. If not at the moment, I'll try and try again until I can overcome this (semi-artificial) hurdle.
And if you can find the time and are willing to do...

Open/Public answer to a recent blog post at LinkedIn

Posted July 14, 2018 at 09:03 by wyldckat

This blog post provides a complete answer to Tobias Holzmann's following post at LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update...72321633218560

11th community OpenFOAM Workshop: finally managed to attend one of these! Part 1

Posted July 3, 2016 at 13:43 by wyldckat

While the latest OpenFOAM-dev and 4.0 snapshots are building on my machine, I'm taking the opportunity to write a bit of what happened at the 11th community OpenFOAM Workshop this year (2016), at least from my point of view. I'm not going to write everything, otherwise it would be a short book, including information that was damaged due to memory compression in my mind.

I've been using OpenFOAM since 2009 and only this year did I finally manage to go to an international community workshop...
