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!
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.
