Thrilled to announce that, starting this week, I've joined Télécom Paris (part of Institut Polytechnique de Paris) as full professor (french title of 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘧𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘶𝘳) of computer science, as a member of the ACES research team. (Of course I'll keep working on Software Heritage from there!) More soon…

This is it for my live coverage of the event at @UNESCO for the 5-year anniversary of @swheritage.

If you like what we do, consider participating to our fundraising, we are looking for our first 100 donors before end of the year! softwareheritage.org/
