Web & Mobile

What do I do ?

JavaScript Software Engineer at PayrollHero

I moved in April 13 from Montreal, QC to Vancouver, BC to work as a front-end software engineer in PayrollHero. I'm working towards the whole refactor on the front-end stack to a new modular one, with Jasmine behavior tests. I'm also developing HTML5 mobile apps.

Open Source

I'm working hard in open sourcing most experiments I do. I'm very interested in the Quantifed Self movement. I'm currently playing with Fitbit APIs and Raspberry Pi, but I also created ConfMate, a open source mobile app for conferences around the globe who has been use in severals events now.

Freelance and teaching contracts

I do freelance work for 3 years, on mobile projects, and return to France to host training seminars on mobile web frameworks like Sencha Touch for Paris based startups like 22Mars or SensCritique.

What do I work with ?

Mobile

I'm an expert of Sencha Touch, Appcelerator Titanium and have a lot of experience with PhoneGap too. I care a lot about user experience, clean user interfaces and responsive design.

Desktop

I work a lot with Backbone.js, Backbone Boilerplate, Require.JS, Ext-JS, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, ajax-based web apps, Twitter Bootstrap...

Server & CLI :

I've developed apps based on node.js, mostly using mongoDb & Mongoose, Express, Socket.io, and used Grunt.js to build, compress, package and deploy. Back in the day, I was writing PHP and used MySQL.

APIs & services

I use git and github for every project and work on Mac OS as well as on Windows or Unix. I've used in all the projects I took part different APIs from Google (Maps, Analytics), Facebook, Twitter, OAuth2...

My Publications

Sencha Touch Book

With a co-worker, I started in 2012 to write a Sencha Touch Book in French for the Digit Books editions. We are currently finishing to update it for Sencha Touch 2.1.

My blog

When I got the time and find something that may helps others, I post on my blog. I actually post only in French because there are already a lot of resources for english speaking people.

Photography

PHP, jQuery & Flickr API

Available online

Clément is a very talented photographer doing many shoots and that's why he needed a website where he can expose every piece of work he has done, and in a fullscreen view.

LiYo Cuisines

LiYo Cuisines is a kitchen saler company located in southern France. As they cannot have a real showcase of every kitchen and tools they are offering, they asked me to develop a virtual showcase by adding galeries of every style and design. That was a quite complex information architecture to think but the result is here, and I am proud of it. I also did the design.

I've been working for several startups like Ziliko, Avril Consulting, and Bob El Web. Feel free to check them out and see what I've been working on.

Travel

When I lived in France, I traveled in most of the European countries. I love to live abroad and discover new cultures.
