August 29th, 2016

I was looking at the WordCamp schedule the other day, trying to figure out which one I could go to. I pinpointed WCCBUS in Columbus, Ohio, August 26-28. I thought “Ok, I am in New York. My flight back to Paris is on September 2nd. This is doable.” I submitted the idea to Florian, the […]

A Digital Nomad in Paris

July 4th, 2016

Wherever they go, Digital Nomads look for coworking places where they can bring their laptop and sit for hours while working remotely for their clients from all over the world, and eventually, make good connections. I just spent two months in Paris and that’s basically what I did everyday. As soon as I arrived, back […]

IAMSocial 1.0.2

October 14th, 2015

After submitting IAMSocial to the WordPress Directory in August, I finally heard back from the Review Team last week. As I expected, my theme was not approved to go live right away and my reviewer sent me a long list of issues to be fixed. After working hard on them, I resubmitted IAMSocial, now 1.0.2. […]

The Other Half of Me

March 10th, 2015

I like to think of my website and my blog as two complementary platforms to give my visitors insights not only on my work, but also on my personality. In the Oxford Dictionary, “complementarity” is defined as follow: “The concept that two contrasted theories, such as the wave and particle theories of light, may be […]

Bootstrapping and Masoning #IAMSocial

December 3rd, 2014

About two years ago I decided to dig into Bootstrap. It took me some efforts at the beginning but with time and practice I got used to its column grid system standards, its powerful UI components and its LESS based structure. Always willing to try out new techniques, I was excited when our professor introduced […]

Is this for an appointment with the eye doctor?

November 24th, 2014

As web designers and developers, we tend to take our design for granted and we expect the user to get it right away. But, what’s obvious to us, might not be as obvious to a person who sees our website for first time and has no idea what it’s all about. Last week, I had […]
