Bullseye Presentation

A few years ago, I found that there was not an up-to-date presentation for the upcoming release of Debian at the time. I therefore set about creating one.

This is now an ongoing project, my personal remit is to keep this updated by researching information about the upcoming release(s) of Debian. The next release is Debian 11 (Bullseye) as this is now frozen then I am working on the update.

Presentation is in Beamer, which is a LaTeX package for creating presentations. I am however using Overleaf to create the document.

I am on IRC (oftc) as zleap if anyone wants to discuss further. I will also be at the DebConf Planning meeting on the 24th.

Avoiding Interview mistakes

Last night, I attended a webinar on avoiding interview mistakes. This was presented by Scismic [1], who specialise in Biotechnology. However the tips and advice given are applicable across a wide range of industries.

This was really good, and lots of really useful advice which I will be using going forward in my job search.

As I first learned about Scismic, from a CV webinar, they presented in collaboration with Overleaf. I have included a link to the Overleaf webinar page. It should be possible to view a recording of this.

Posting this, for anyone interested in the 2021 TeXLive Roadmap to release.

TeX Live is intended to be a straightforward way to get up and running with the TeX document production system. It provides a comprehensive TeX system with binaries for most flavors of Unix, including GNU/Linux, macOS, and also Windows. It includes all the major TeX-related programs, macro packages, and fonts that are free software, including support for many languages around the world. Many operating systems provide it via their own distributions.


Plan for TeX Live 2021:
15feb: candidate/final sources committed, test builds begin.
28feb: tlnet (and TL'20) frozen, tlpretest starts, CTAN updates continue there.
15mar: code freeze for final build, major bug fixes only.
27mar: final updates from CTAN, final doc tweaks.
29mar: deliver TL image for TeX Collection packaging/testing.
5apr: deliver TeX Collection DVD image for manufacturing.
10apr: public release (also of MacTeX).
June?: delivery of DVDs to members.

LaTeX and Overleaf – Changing the compiler

A question came up on IRC earlier about Overleaf, LaTeX and compiling to use the \usepackage{arabluatex} package.

I suggested that it is possible to change the compiler to use LuaTeX and made the following video to help others with this
