Making people happy with new technology
Fallen into the cauldron of new technologies in the late 80s, I didn't resist to pursue a carreer in that area. Starting with web site projects in PERL, I quickly focused in PHP coding then Drupal CMS platform.
Early I decided to use opensource and / or free software : Knowledge was easy to find and learning was facilitated by strong communities. I invest time into learning System administration et selected Debian as my main linux distribution. Today, most of my technical decisions are focused on Open Source, reusable softwares, giving back to the communities.
Working in small companies, helped me to work on different positions, and specifically Project management. My strogest competence today is to be able to understand all stage of a developement project : from business analysis, business requierement, planification, to delibrables, over development, administration, support, follow up, design, UX, UI.
I like new technologies as tools to help me in my life and tasks. I like to help, giving time to people. I like learning, reading, watching. I like to collect information and knowledge through travelling, photographying, participating to events and helping team to build some.
In the last 15+ years of professionl work, lots can be said. Here I only focus on experiences which are specifically rewarding in their own way.
