I have been passionate about development since I was 11 years old. Creating websites from college to today, I became a web developer then a project manager.
Before, I worked for 8 years in a web agency. I started with showcase sites for artisans, then moved on to community sites (town halls, tourist offices, etc.) to end up exclusively dealing with major accounts (e-commerce sites, internal tools, b2b, etc.). In direct contact with customers and highly appreciated as a main contact, I became a project manager. Referencing, marketing and performance have always been present during the development of our projects.
I'm open to work. If you have an exciting project, we can discuss it!
Hardware Things that I can touch
13" screen / Touchbar / 2020 / 2.3 Ghz Intel i7 / 16 Go / 512 Go
Yep, still not on the shiny silicon. Even after seeing the unbelievable performance and efficiency with my own eyes. I think I will just wait the moment when this computer is not fulfilling my needs anymore. Hot take: Touchbar is awesome and I will miss it!
4th generation / 64 Go / Wifi
I never found tablets useful before, a computer and a phone is all you need. I didn't even have a TV. I purchased this iPad refurbished for one and only reason: having a portable second screen for my Mac. Now it's part of my daily routine. I don't know how I do, but I do switch seamlessly between my 3 devices
Iphone 13 Mini
13 Mini / 128 Go / 5G / Dual sim
Yep I'm in this minority of buyers. And I understand why the mini it's discontinued. It's great, but it's always right on the edge performance wise. This lifespan will be shorter than bigger models for sure. I like the form factor, the connectivity is great, photos are great and having dual sim is really handy when traveling
1st gen with wireless charging case
Nothing to say, they are perfect. If you want to send me a gift, I will happily take the new ones ^^
Logitech MX Master 3S
White / Mac edition
I'm a hybrid user. I use both my mouse and my Touchpad, don't recommend it, wy wrist hurts me so much. But I recommend this mouse, it's great ! And I can switch between my mac, ipad and Steam Deck.
1st gen LCD version / 512 Go / anti-glare screen
From 12 to 28 years old, I had a sick gaming desktop setup. Now that I'm a nomad, the Steam Deck is perfect until I buy a new home
2.3L / 150 HP / H2L3 / converted by myself
Why there is a van in this list? Did you see that awesome picture at the beginning of this page? I'm living in a van and this van has an awesome electrical setup. Full Victron, lot of solar power and Starlink (soon). Soon there will be an entire article to go through the specs.
Software I use daily to code
I mean, it does everything I need. Use what suits you. Plugins I recommend ordered by importance: Nyan Progress Bar, Laravel IDEA, Laravel, Pest, Alpine.js support, Emmet everywhere, Antlers Language Support
The only database tool you need
Raycast is an extendable launcher that replace my MacOS Spotlight
A desktop application that serves as the dedicated home for debugging output. No more dump() and dd() that broke your page
Prototyping PHP code has never been so easy
It all begin in a terminal, right?
Services I'm subscribed to
Security focused email provider. I'm using it for my custom domain mails.
Privacy focused analytics. You can find it on every website I made. Simple and not intrusive
All-in-one monitoring tool for websites. Great tool to monitor the front but your back too
Server management for your Laravel applications from the creator of Laravel them self
You have better things to do than upgrade Laravel. Let bots do all the shifty work for you.
