Now

What Am I up to these days:

Well, this happened in November:

  • I'm learning a ton by watching Jordan's B. Peterson lecture 2017 - Maps of Meaning
  • Preparing my first presentations at Containous
  • I'm watching the no-code movement which is well curated by Ben at makerpad
  • I'm moving my CI/CD from Travis to Github Actions (workflow) (example)
  • I just upgraded my office that have a better lighting, sound and fun
  • During the evening and the weekends, I'm hustling on FirePress
  • Going to KubeCon San Diego 19'
  • Winter is coming: I'm way too much inside these day

In short, I am:

  • Cloud Developer Advocate (America) 🤓 Containous
  • Founder at  FirePress 👨‍💻 (Website hosting on Ghost)
  • Digital Nomad wannabe 🙊

Random stuff about my life:

  • One of my GitHub project is getting some traction
  • Je me présente sur ce poste —  Qui suis-je
  • I live in Montréal, Canada.
  • I'm having a blast with my girlfriend Avril Franco
  • My personality type is the debater (ENTP-A).
  • Former singer at Star Académie 2003. Think of it as an American Idol version of the show in Québec Canada

  • My Vlog #OneStepAtATime — I’m starting the show « One Step at a Time» as I realize that I still have a good 50 years in front of me. I want to share my personnal journey as I believe it’s gonna be an outstanding one. It’s also to remind myself that when I’m impatient, life is not about the destination, it’s about
    the journey.
  • The #AskMeAboutYourWebsite show — I'm documenting FirePress’s journey 🌇 for the next 10 years. This is a place where I allow myself to go deep into our vision of building an outstanding website on 🔥📰.

No go

Here are the things I active prevent myself to do. Cause I need to focus and execute the big plan.

  • Start learning about AI with this awesome course
  • Build an Alexa skill
  • Start learning to day trade
  • Deploy Discourse stack
  • Learn Ansible / Terraform
