Compiling and publishing multilingual LaTeX with GitHub

I have been wanting to publish my CV in my personal site for quite some time, but first I needed to make sure that it was always up-to-date. I.e. that it was compiled and published automatically every time I made some changes to the source file.

Just Get My Data: Get your data from various web services

We all know that since the last couple of years we can ask any web that services EU citizens to delete our data, but… we can also ask them to send us our data, in a legible format.
