About me

I'm a self-taught fullstack web developer. I would describe myself as an eternal curious, constantly eager to learn something new.

During the day, I create websites with Drupal and Javascript - and a lot of filter coffee. At night, I wear my hat and whip and I play with Python.

I love organized things and to work with passionated people.

I'm also a chess addict - come and challenge me!

How to became a web developer

After an exciting master degree in Geography and Tourism in Paris at the University of Paris I - Pantheon Sorbonne where I was introduced to many scientific disciplines including cartography, sociology, statistics and even territorial marketing1, I found my happiness in doing web development in 2010 with the discovery of WordPress.

I started to code things - I should say to break things - in WordPress (3.0) and FileMaker 12 in the summer of that year.

I was working for a French DMC1 in Mallorca for a few months when I was given the opportunity to develop several websites to showcase travel offers for the next season. At that time, I didn't know much about programing, database nor web design but I received support from my dad - who is a former IT specialist - and other great folks from ProVoyages VacancesRefineriaWeb and Stackoverflow all along the way of my learning. I spent countless nights without sleep, playing around with HTML, CSS and Javascript. Most of the time it ended in the morning with me and my hundredth cup of coffee trying to fix the things I had be broken the whole night.

It has been so challenging and exhausting... but incredibly exciting and fun! 

Since then I've worked in several companies worldwide - including Hong Kong, Spain, France and Canada.

I am now experienced in many different technologies and frameworks but I've specialized myself in Open Source software programming. I have learned so much thanks to the open source communities, both technically and intellectually.

Being a web developer It's an endless learning - and it's precisely why I'm glad I became one.

What I (love) to do

Thanks to my years of experience, I now know what I am best at.

I am a good fullstack Drupal developer. I pay particular attention to respect good practices, coding standards and code quality.

I can build and deploy entire Drupal 8 websites from scratch in a limited amount of time. 

I am also quite good at SEO and accessibility.

 

What would best describe my work?

Keeping things simple.

 

What I work on

These days, I work on creating beautiful and efficient websites in Drupal and web apps in Javascript - playing with Angular, React and VueJS. I can feel most the websites and applications will be more or less Headless in a few years so I want to be efficient and able to act on both sides - front end and back end.

I am also trying to improve my skills in Python for IoT projects.

Finally, I practice Amazon Web Services to get my certification.
