Who am I ?
Curious and Open minded, I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in great projects in the past and at present. My experience is mostly focused on Java, being programmer and architect. But I have also participated in thrilling embedded real time projects in C and writing of drivers for Linux.
I’m an Open Source addict and have been using it since the beginning of my work experience. I’ve been involved since a few years in Open Source whether as a contributor (Jakarta Slide, OsWorkflow, Eclipse JWT), new initiatives co-creator (ESBi at Objectweb) or Open Source ‘evangelist’ (Linux solutions, ObjectWeb Con, 01 seminaries,…). I’ve been also providing Open Source services for over 6 years now (part of this activity was the Open Wide in France), working tightly with Open Source communities such as ObjectWeb and Eclipse (been involved in the creation of WTP).
In my spare time I’m writing articles for magazines such as Programmez or Solutions logiciels. Most of them are focused on Java Programming and if not on Java or Open Source market analysis. I’ve also written a few articles for local newspapers or magazines.
As part of my activities in Luxembourg, I’m the creator and coordinator of an event aiming at promoting Open Source in Luxembourg and called ‘Meet the Communities’. You can find more on this on the MTC website.
Aside this, I’m also fond of music and especially thrash metal. I have been drummer of Kraal, a powerful band from the north of France, during approximately 4 years.This band was really nice and I think we have achieved together something very special. You can listen to a few titles right down here.
