Indigenous for Desktop

I'm excited to announce that Indigenous for Desktop has a first release! Like the Android client, this application allows you to interact with the IndieWeb using the Micropub and Microsub specifications. Besides the fun of experimenting with a different framework, there are a couple of other reasons why I felt the need to have a different client.

Quasi un'Utopia : the final act

Two years after I announced my piano challenge - to be fair, I really only took it serious this year - le moment suprême has arrived: I'll be performing the Moonlight Sonata the 8th of December on a concert in the church of Zevergem. I'm not alone that afternoon: together with 2 choirs and the harmony orchestra of De Pinte, we'll be playing to raise money for Studio Brussel's De Warmste Week.

Push notifications with Indigenous

The latest release of Indigenous for Android brings a handy new feature: push notifications! You can fully control what you receive, since you are able to send them yourself on any given moment. Push notifications are send via Pushy.me which relies on MQTT.

Paid contributing to Drupal

Starting this year, I have the opportunity to contribute to Drupal and get paid for it. While I've had sponsored time in the past, this time it's recurring: Dropsolid is paying me a day a month to work on Drupal core or contrib. 1 day is limited, however, make no mistake, even one day is useful to get into the queue and review issues or commit patches on contrib modules I maintain. And of course, I credit them in the issue queue.
