Studies

Peer to peer school offering practical computer science projects.

Licence at
Paris 7 uni.

Gave me theoretical knowledge in algorithmics (like automata and graph theories).

Working with

Note that as a developer, I can adapt myself to any documented programming language or technology.

C

For system programming. I can work with networking, concurrency (processes, threads, synchronization)…

JavaScript

PHP

Worked on personal projects using vanilla PHP for a decade.

I follow some of the language's development (RFCs, internals).

Java

A good language to learn OOP.

Used it a lot at uni, e.g. for system programming.

POSIX shell

Since I developed parts of a shell following POSIX, I have good knowledge in shell syntax and features.

Python 3

Good for cross-platform scripts when POSIX shell is not possible.

For larger applications, I need to improve by learning best practices.

Databases

Mainly using relational databases like PostgreSQL and MariaDB (MySQL).

Also some knowledge in NoSQL (Redis, MongoDB).

Elixir

Got into Elixir at the same time I used OCaml at university.

I'm learning it for building concurrent distributed applications.

nginx

After using Apache httpd, I moved to nginx, like a lot of people. It's much easier to use.

System admin­istration

I use UNIX-like OS on desktop and servers: Arch Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, FreeBSD.

Infosec

I'm kept informed about recent vulnerabilities and types of attacks in my daily readings.

Looking into OSINT.

Running on my servers

This website

Was previously developed along with a self built modular framework using PHP, but I've reworked it using Jekyll.

Mastodon

Mastodon is a decentralized social network based on ActivityPub.

This instance is not open to registrations.

ZNC

Feed reader, will be replaced by my own news aggregator.

Software I promote

Neovim

Vim replacement. I stopped to use other editors. Once configured with (vim) plugins it's pretty usable.

Audacity

For small audio edits (example: copy/cut), and to detect loops.

NoMacs

Cross-platform image viewer, a bit slow to load.

Gimp

I always use this image editor, for simple use. See also Inkscape or Krita.

Gaming

Enemy Territory

An old FPS, but still actively developed by the ET: Legacy team.

Playing on the ETc Clan server, which is one of the top servers.

Wolfy

Used to play to Terraria, Civilization V, Dead Cells…

Occasionally playing to League of Legends, Apex Legends, Sea of Thieves, Minecraft and other various games.

I really like TV series created by J. J. Abrams.

Person of Interest

Good thinking about what AI is or might become.

Breaking Bad

If you get bored by your life and like chemistry: just watch this.

See also the Better Call Saul prequel.

The IT Crowd

About the IT team of a company, living in the basement.

The best sitcom ever!

What happens if you enter a Stargate backward?

A selection of my favorite animes

See MyAnimeList for a complete list.

Code Geass
(R1 & R2)

Hero gets a power (Geass) that makes him able to give one forced order to anyone.

This is my favorite anime. Not the most intelligent, but I watched it twice to make sure it was the best!

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)

A dystopia where children get powers and are learning to get control over these.

The most intelligent anime I've seen. Starts slowly but becomes really nice.

Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes)

This is a story of real star wars. All the episodes are rich of content compared to newer animes.

Don't mind poor graphics!

Monster

A doctor saved a boy, that happens to be a serial killer. That doctor pursues him for revenge, as he is the primary suspect of investigations.

Fate/Zero

A prequel to Fate/stay night, by Gen Urobuchi. The Holy Grail War is a contest between mages, the winner having their wish granted. Each mage (Master) summons a hero (Servant) that fights in their place.

Durarara!! & x2

Young ones in mafia stuff, an antihero, a few supernatural characters.

Cowboy Bebop

A very nice space opera.

Normally I don't like episodic animes or TV series. You should watch this one anyway.

Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)

God is dying and makes a contest to find his successor. Each player gets a power through their phone and needs to kill each other. Two children team-up.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

A utopia that warns of the danger of transhumanism. What if you could hack into brains?

A few mangas I've read

Berserk

A dark story, about demons that rule the world, and an orphan hero with a sword.

The golden age arc makes it the best manga of all time.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

In a post-apocalyptic world, a strange forest is growing and seems to destroy all humanity.

Written by Hayao Miyazaki, this manga led to the animated film adaptation.

The Promised Neverland

In an orphanage, a few intelligent children discover that their orphanage is a farm made by demons for eating humans. They plan to escape.
