The blog is back

The blog is back, with a fresh coat of paint and powered by Quarto.

January 3, 2024

Hi everyone,

Long time no see, right?

The last post I wrote on this blog is almost a year old, and a lot has happened in the meantime, behind the scenes. I won’t go into details (if you know, you know!), but 2023 has been a tough year for a bunch of different reasons. But we are back, baby!, and this time I will try to contribute content more consistently.

If you are new around here, you’ll notice that things look a bit different. For the keen observers in the audience this won’t be a surprise, but this blog is now powered by the amazing Quarto, with a custom, hand-crafted theme to bring the old website design into 2024. Gone is the old International Orange; welcome to Very Peri, the former Pantone color of the year for 2022. The new main typeface is Atkinson Hyperlegible for improved accessibility, and Ubuntu Condensed and Fira Code are used for headers and code, respectively.

I think the new design is great, and I hope you’ll like it too. Please have a look around and let me know if you spot anything broken.

I am keeping this post short and sweet, so that’s it for now, but I’ll be back very soon with some news I have already started working on. In the meantime, hope you had a nice holiday season and a happy new year!
