  • Software developer,
  • Functional specifications,
  • User interface and user experience.

I have been developing software since 1997 in various contexts and wide range of technologies.

I like to create software, whether on the side of the servers (Java, NodeJS), or in front of your users, in a web browser (HTML5 / JS / CSS) or on their phone (iOS, web).

I can also take care of your training, or that of your users.

Helping you to upstream the development of your project is also one part of my capabilities. In collaboration with you and your users I can define the specifications of your project and carry out the functional and technical specifications of your product.

This is a non-issue to me, I can learn and adapt.


  • Java J2SE or J2EE ;
  • Mac OS X or iOS with Cocoa ;
  • Unix ;
  • Web Service or light client.


  • SCRUM methodology ou more classical waterfall cycle?

Still a non-issue for as I can, and will, adapt.
