I've always wondered what it would like to blog. To be honest, I've always wanted to share thoughts and ideas on the internet.

But I've never had the courage to do it. I always wondered, on which subject could I write? Could I say something interesting enough? Should I write in french or in english?

Then I met Lionel Clément. He is the creator of « l'ivre de lire » (http://www.livredelire.com), and more recently « InWonderland » (http://inwonderland.fr/), a more personal blog.

The guideline on both blogs: he is talking about his passions. And I realized that was the real deal: share thoughts about passions.

About me

I was born in 1988 in Normandy (you'll guess I'm french then). I've started coding at the age of 14. I have studied mathematics and informatics in an engineering school (Ensimag) after studying maths / physics / chemistry.

I am a developper, I have been working on critical industrial systems for a few years. I've lead a mobile tech group in my previous company and I've also teached algorithmic at Ensimag.

With Nicolas Saubin (http://www.nicolas-saubin.com), I am the co-founder and CTO of Collibris: http://www.collibris-app.com, a french mobile and web app about sharing and discovering books. This is the biggest project of my life and it's highly probable most posts of this blog will be somehow related to Collibris.

I have a LOT of passions. Some only last for a time, but I'm always willing to try something new. Among those:

  • Music (bass / guitar / singing — I'm the bassist of a group)
  • Œnology (wine tasting — I've met Nicolas thanks to this)
  • Beerology (beer tasting)
  • Magic (cardistry)
  • Lockpicking
  • Martial arts
  • etc.

But my main passion is informatics. I just love being a developper, building apps and software, and everything related to it (agile, testing, user experience, etc.).

About this blog

As I've said, I'm a techie. On this blog, I'll be posting my share of code. I will also talk about anything revolving around code and technical skills.

This is just the beginning, so I'm not quite sure exactly how it will look like. I really hope I'll be able to connect with people, providing quality content, as I've seen on many blogs.

With this blog, I'll try to express my opinions about coding. This world has evolved a lot (quicker than any other in my opinion) and is still evolving at an incredible speed. It's easy to get lost in only a few years.

I also hope that I'll be able to help other people out with my posts. Coding always has been about sharing, and many have helped me with their blogs, I feel this is the opportunity fore me to put another brick in the wall.

See you soon !
Paul, out.
