I remember when I started as a Technical Evangelist: I wanted to know everything, and I was feeling bad when I didn’t know something. I had this imposter syndrome as I thought that, as a mentor for many developers, my role was to be that go to person for all in all. Over time, I... Read more

Because there aren’t enough cat pictures on the Internet: my first photography course homework


As I said in my post about creating slides worth of showing them, I’m taking two courses now, and one of them is about photography. This is a passion for me since a couple of years now, but since the beginning, I suck at taking pictures. I even invest in good equipments, but still, if... Read more

How to blog more often


Don’t get me wrong: I’m a huge fan of quality over quantity. On the other side, quantity helped me get quality, and people often ask me how do I blog so often (an average of one post every other day). Depending on your blog, and the subjects you want to cover, it may be harder.... Read more
