Huge thanks to Plata for the nifty set of Python scripts that speed up collecting links from feeds by a lot.

Please note

This one is a bit early due to taking a week of from work and travels to Lake Como. This update was written on bad mobile internet in rural germany, and then bad train internet in Switzerland - I hope it's still 'good enough'. Due to being abroad and taking a break, help with next weeks weekly update (again to be written on a lengthy train ride on May 13th), is even more appreciated than usual.

Something missing? Want to contribute?

If your project's cool story (or your awesome video or nifty blog post or ...) is missing and you don't want that to happen again, please just put it into the hedgedoc pad for the next one! Since I am collecting many things there, this get's you early access if you will ;-) If you just stumble on a thing, please put it in there too - all help is appreciated!
