À propos

EDIT / 2017 : Salut, je suis actuellement disponible à l'embauche (!) – uniquement sur l'Île de la Réunion – ok pour du télé-travail et/ou du freelancing – ok pour des contrats courts ou moyen termes quoique sous conditions, en particulier de faisabilité “sans compromis”.

Hi, I’m Fabien, sort of a computer nerd who lives in Reunion Island (Indian Ocean, France territory).

I have about 7+ years of experience in developing web applications in PHP, including the maintenance of legacy codes, and porting stuff to Symfony 2.

I’m okay when it comes down to Linux: like writing shell scripts, administering hosts, and all the rest of it.

I also like coding in C/C++, and specifically “systems programming”.

2017: Currently learning Node.js & “full JavaScript” web development – looked at Electron for building desktop apps and the Meteor platform for mobile apps – been doing some C++ hacking on Clang, dropped it out of boredom – investigating the Rust as a replacement for my C & C++ in my errands in low-level “systems” programming language.

2016-09: I’m leaving Cines :-|   had a very good time there – good luck and godspeed, I’ll miss you guys…
