I'm working on the English write-up!

Welp, you can now watch me delivering the talk about why I think federated package management is what we should do. Ulp.

'Hyperland, a scam in n-dimensions' my adaptation of 'Flatland, a romance of many dimensions' to talk about data and machine learning.
Full write up coming soon.
