Who is Hendrik Schmeer?
After having started a typical self-taught programmer career by trying to make my ideas work, I found myself being passionate about that. Soon I began to work as a freelance-programmer from 2011 onwards.
Because of this, I took the chance to start an education at the University of Cologne in the following time. First stumbling across Media-Informatics with an emphasis on cultural studies, I finally switched over to Geography and Computer Science .
Recent study interests are geography of economics, especially small sustainable enterprise networks, post-growth economics, spatial humanities and digital humanities in general.

Digital Humanities Registry
While the DH-Courseregistry started out in 2014, it initially aimed to provide a Dutch/Flemish overview only.
Being designed to be a selfmaintaining online directory, it soon became scaled up to European level.
The DH-Projectregistry was to follow up in 2015, based on the previous work and as a Dutch overview again.
