I recently discovered that you can read issues most of Die TeXnische Komödie online. My German is good enough to get the gist of the articles, and there is some interesting stuff there. I’ve always meant to join DANTE, if only to support their core CTAN server, and so this seemed like an ideal opportunity. So in the post this week I got the various goodies that they send out: I particularly like the sticker!
What’s particular interesting for me is the section in Die TeXnische Komödie detailing the various TeX-related meet-ups that take place in Germany: there are a lot! Here in the UK, I’m pleased that UK-TUG manages a couple of training courses and a single speaker meeting/AGM every year. It’s quite a contrast!
