since darktable is now officially my full-time job, and because I’m use to poor time-scheduling resulting in me working too hard until exhaustion and becoming angry, I have decided to take drastic measures for my own health for 2020. Basically, user support is getting in the way of developping, and trying to do everything at once obviously doesn’t work.
Wednesday and Saturday
Between noon and 10pm (UTC+1/Paris) I will be providing:
- live support/hotline:
- asynchronous support:
- in English here,
- in French on darktable.fr forum,
- on the mailing list.
Please keep conversations public as long as they don’t contain personal information, so answers benefit everyone.
Edit: Wednesday seems to be too busy for most users, so due to the lack of interest, it will be reallocated to programming.
I will only write articles and record video tutorials. I won’t open emails, chats and forums.
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
I will work on code (new features and bug fixes) and reserve communication for fellow developers.
I will disappear from the internets. Hit me if you are near Nancy and want to have beers somewhere.
In addition, since it has been requested a couple of times, I will be offering personal training on darktable editing through Skype video chat (for the screen sharing), for 25€/h (discounts possible if you are involved in libre software development or live in difficult situations/countries – to be discussed). This will be a great opportunity to get customized advice from someone who knows its sourcecode to bend darktable into your workflow and make the best out of it.
Thanks to everyone who supported me this year and the previous one. I’m still not up to my income goal on Liberapay, but people seem to be more generous this year, so I might have health insurance in 2020 \o/.
