Sander van Geloven is an independent ICT consultant, mainly in the role of information analyst. In his versatile work he is an avid user of and contributor to FOSS. Since the late nineties, he has actively contributed to several communities. His drive is: “What can possibly be cooler than improving the software you are working with, while optimising your work processes and have fun at the same time?” Sander's favourite projects include Python Natural Language Toolkit, Hunspell, XeTeX and Inkscape.

FOSS spell and grammar checking was what Sander gave a talk about at FOSDEM 2016. At the fall conference of the NLUUG in the same year he spoke about the English locale for the Netherlands for glibc. Currently he is working on a project for Stichting, a cultural foundation for the greater good which was founded in 2003. Z25 produces innovative and artistic new media while researching the underlying processes to bridge the connection with content and artistic quality. This organisation creates meaningful experiences through the innovative application of new media under the motto Inspire developers, empower artists in order to bridge the gap between technology and artistry.
