Best links of the week #32

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Best links of the week from 12th August to 18th August

Due to vacations and an accident at the end of the trip, I was unable to bring to you a set of links as diverse and rich in quality as I’m used to. Comics will also be replaced by this picture of my fiancée and me in front of the Château de Chambord :-). The number of opportunities remains the same, though! I will make sure to bring a better release of this series next week 🙂
