TeX Welt: A new (German) TeX blog

If you are involved in (La)TeX for any length of time, you notice that using TeX is very popular in German-speaking countries. DANTE, the German-speaking TeX user group, is big, and there are several German-language TeX websites out there. They’ve now been joined by a new German-language TeX blog, TeX Welt. This has popped-up following some discussion on the TeX-sx chat system, and is being hosted by Stefan Kottwitz (a man with a server farm in his house!). Of course, we don’t all speak fluent German, but I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on the new site: always more to learn!

Keeping track of changes

Moving my code from BitBucket to GitHub has shown me (once again) the need to keep my changes to my code very organised. There was quite a bit of work to do getting all of the issues migrated, and it wasn’t helped by the fact that I’ve been less than perfect in keeping each commit I make focussed on one thing. A timely reminder that it’s important to be careful if you write a lot of code.
