Support and Credits

Credits

This course would not exist without support of certain people and organizations.

Companies

  • Eliademy made a huge technical and organizational contribution. It would not be possible to make video recordings without their assistance with equipment and travel arrangements.

Individuals

  • Richard M. Stallman, Founder of FSF. It is 100% clear that this course would not exist without him and his very active and professional contribution.
  • Sotiris Makrygiannis, Eliademy co-founder & CEO. He has initiated the whole project and provided outstanding support (from Eliademy side and also as a person) to make it happen.
  • Tuomo Ryynänen A lot of thanks to Tuomo and his family for providing a space for filming the videos and their warm and patient attitude to the restless guests.
  • Pasi Husso for helping with producing videos, creating most of the slides and music theme for the course.
