My name is Manu De Buck. I was born in 1999, in Ghent. I am a Computer Science Engineer living in Belgium. My main interest is Artificial Intelligence, especially when used (in the) right (situation). My focus is on well-structured and thoughtful code, as I think quality always dominates quantity. I love to keep learning about new stuff and I am always open for a constructive discussion. In my free time I love to listen and play music, play a videogame or go for a run.

Together with a (large) team of enthusiastic students we build the biggest one-day festival of Belgium, literally ‘kicking-off’ the start of the new academic year. Each year we are happy to welcome incredible artists and an average of 22,000 visitors.
Unfortunately, in 2021 we had to cancel our event due to SARS-CoV-2. The next year, in 2022 I had the opportunity to become Coordinator Site Management, the right hand of the Team Lead Site & Safety. Our team is responsible to construct all structures on the terrain as well as their safety. We also make sure that all electrical devices are connected to the power net and do all communication with the city of Ghent and first aid services.
