So happy and proud for Jos (Jozua de Boer), my first PhD student who Yesterday defended a magnificent thesis (the blue book about "high contrast imaging of protoplanetary disks") in Leiden. We first met in 2012 and we "grew academically" together, me as ESO scientist and co-promotor (together with Prof.Dr Christoph Keller) and him as a student astronomer and now postdoc. I’m glad I could make it. PhD defenses in the Netherlands are really great. He gave a public talk in Dutch, and answered tough questions from a bunch of professors that looked as if they came out straight from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was a thrill to be sitting among them. Congratulations Dr de Boer and to the growing family!!!
