Nowadays, many applications can export GPX files from a device, like phones, smartwatches or security adapters. How many times would you want to analyze and reuse that data? Below I present and describe three scripts in Python to make them more readable like an HTML or PDF document.
Two weeks ago, I was looking for a method to control a waiting list showing the booking time. I wanted to show that time on a series of screens and be able to update it with one or more remote controllers. I was able to achieve this by creating two web pages: one in PHP and the other in HTML. Below I share with you the final result: a slideshow with booking time and educational banners.
If you have the necessity to refresh or reload every a specified time an application that doesn't have this feature, you can adapt my bash script to your duties. Indeed it allows you to kill and reload an application in the same position after a fixed interval of time.

I was just a little annoyed to use the same Curriculum Vitae templates and so I have choice another one that I found on LaTeXTemplates: the Developer CV.

As always in the article I put the download links and a brief description of my additions.
A good curriculum vitae must always be preceded or accompanied by an equally valid cover letter, I have always heard this or it can be read in almost all online guides. As a good awkward customer to this document I have always paid little attention focusing only on the classic CV and so to remedy this today I will publish a very good model found on the internet. It is in LaTeX but even those who do not know this language can easily modify it online following my guide.
Recently thanks to a comment in my unofficial version of Europass CV, I have discovered the existence of the Digital Competence in the official and Giacomo Mazzamuto one. So I have firstly updated my CV and then the template hosted on GitHub and Overleaf.

It happens that you have to print for job or personal pleasure, one or more posters in a big format and like me you don't use famous commercial software and you aren't a professional illustrator. But how can the color palette of your document fit the request of the typography? This post tries to show a simple conversion of a PDF from RGB to CMYK, using ghostscript library and imagemagick in a handy bash script.
