I just gave a talk on the design of the posters, flyers, website and overall identity of this new festival. While I was complaining (not so much) on birdsite about this silly need that I have (I know I'm not alone) to develop a new raw slides framework for each new talk, @raphael suggested to present them in a talk :) What this kind of practice tells me is that I sometimes need inefficiency.

Since a few days, the ÉSAD Pyrénees is switching its standardized formatting template for master thesis from to (md → php → html → ). Responsive web & print design, side notes, images notes, appendices, interviews, bibliography... The goal is to speed up the formatting phase to leave more time for writing, and to promote the sharing of the produced documents.

Just read (once again? sounds so familiar… and still so necessary) Francisco Laranjo / Modes of Criticism rant on It's nice that and friends (2018):

Unparenthesized `a ? b : c ? d : e` is not supported. Use either `(a ? b : c) ? d : e` or `a ? b : (c ? d : e)`

Currently strugling, editing and runing a 1200 lines long python script to migrate a full Django DB to Kirby flat files structure.
