In this talk, I want to talk about my main subject of interest right now. Digital typesetting is the process of generating documents for visual consumption by humans and machines. Several technical solutions exist from Microsoft Word to LaTeχ. In this talk I would like to give you an overview about current approaches and my aspirations.
We are going to talk about markup languages, data serialization format, media formats, lexing & parsing, hyphenation & justification, writing systems & languages and output formats like PDF and EPUB. Honestly, the amount of python is limited to 5%, but the algorithms are language-independent anyways.
I plan a 1.5h talk, but please stop me if I get too enthusiastic.
