Lab & Blog

Most of my work is part of large projects deployed on intranets. But I also develop side projects, mostly non related to business web applications.

Checkout my Lab for some random experiments in HTML5, go-lang, python, Java FX...

I also write technical and non-technical articles on my blog.

Most of the code can be found on GitHub.
