About me

Me in 10 bullet points or so

  • french living in France 🇫🇷
  • I am a site reliability engineer, doing my best to keep systems available
  • I try to be humble, everyone is trying no?
  • I love to be out of my comfort zone and learn new things
  • smile, always… even if it’s raining
  • I was used to do rock climbing before having two childs
  • I am used to drinking coffee to keep me awake 👶 👶

Human languages

My mother tongue is french.
I read and write english fluently. I speak in an intermediate way (B2 level).

Software preferences


I try to use small tools, that follow the KISS1 principle.
My preferred ❤️ Linux distribution is Arch2.
I use i33 as a windows manager… it’s stupid simple and do the job, the further the mouse from my hand is the better I am.

I felt in love with the zsh4 shell with a bit of oh-my-zsh5 steroids and tmux6 to keep my shells organized.

I use vim7 to edit anything that contains characters.
I use mutt8 for my mails and irssi9 for chatting on IRC.


Go10 and C11 are my preferred languages. With that you can conquere the world 🙃
