Aidan Pine


Linguist & Developer
Hello!

My name is Aidan Pine. I'm a settler of European ancestry born in Victoria, B.C. and I developed this site in order to bring together the various language revitalization and open-source software projects that I am involved in.

I fell in love with language revitalization work as a way of combining my interests in language, linguistics, anti-colonial/decolonial methodologies, and computer science.

Currently, I am a full-time application development specialist working on the Indigenous Language Technology project of the National Research Council, the founder and lead developer of Mother Tongues , and part-time technology consultant for the First Nations & Endangered Languages Program and Linguistics Department at the University of British Columbia.

This site

There were a lot of really cool CV templates and things out there, but I ended up building my own because I wanted something that was:

a) static, so I could host for free on GitHub Pages
b) able to generate LaTeX
c) pulled from simple markup like yaml

So, I wrote my CV data in yaml, and use Flask, Frozen-Flask, Jinja2, Skeleton and Fabric to generate a static site and LaTeX CV. I host for free on GitHub, use Cloudflare for free SSL and Mailgun for free email. I slapped an MIT license on the code, so if you think it would be useful to you, go for it!
