Graduated in Computer Science and Graphic Design, I wrote my first lines of Basic at 10 and started working on personal internet projects in the end of the BBS, when the buzz words were Netscape, GeoCities and AltaVista (let's say the late nineties). Okay let's stop here the internet history.

Nowadays, I tend to enrich my Drupal experience with things like SCRUM, Continuous Integration, headless (React, Ionic), components, REST ...

Early enthusiast of Drupal 8, as a Java addict, I am really excited about the PHP 7 / 0bject 0riented and off the island (Symfony / Composer) orientation that the community took. I fell in love with this welcoming community and try to give back whenever possible by contributing translations, patches, modules or documentation.
