Talks, Articles & Open Source

I love to share my knowledge in many ways, especially in conferences. I spoke in various sessions, such as Paris Web, SudWeb, BlendWebMix, Kiwipartÿ, TakeOff Conf… My talks are available online, and mainly speak about quality, JavaScript, frameworks, accessibility and cryptography.

I also write articles in my notes and for some other platforms, like OpenWeb group and the Clever Age blog.

I collaborate on various OSS projects, like Brunch.io, Oh-My-ZSH, BrowserSync and others. I also wrote JS polyfills like SVGEventListener.

I wouldn't be mad if I didn't have another cool project, so I'm currently writing a book called Browser as a platform: unleash the power of strong webapps. It tries to give a solution to the huge and unmaintainable large codebases, especially when you work with multiple developers, across distributed teams. I hope the book can be one day finished.
