This weblog is about my journey from TeX to Python and back again, taking in some interesting diversions. I’ve been using TeX to write mathematics and other documents for about 20 years, and admire its stability and high-quality output. I work for The Open University, the UK’s leading provider of distance learning, providing system support for the use of TeX to produce mathematics and upper-level physics courses.

For two days a week, until the end of 2009, I’m also working two days a week as part of COLMSCT, which is Centre of Excellence in the teaching and learning of Mathematics, Science, Computing and Technology. My project is Formulas in web pages and authoring formulas.

Come back in a day or two, and you’ll be able to read about my journey to Python and back.
