KevCaz's Website

In my professional life, I mainly write about ecology (see the publications section) but I spend a fair amount of my time on my computer looking at new freeware, new computational tools, new programming langages, etc. to find better practices and share them with colleagues. That is the reason why I partnered up with colleagues/friends to start inSileco, a blog that focuses on computational tools for ecologists. I try to post on this blog regularly medium-size articles and I decided to report short notes here. Note that I am currently working on Debian (see below for my current configuration), and hence the content of the notes below may sometimes be valid only the distribution I am using (e.g. keyboard shortcuts). Finally, the complete list of tags used throughout these notes is available here.
