Don’t hurt Mozilla

mozlove-featured

The storm that hit Mozilla since a couple of days makes me sad… I’m in favor of gay marriage. I also have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender friends. I would have the same opinion without them in my life. I firmly believe in freedom, and I respect people who don’t have the same opinion or... Read more

HTML5 sur les stéroïdes à HTML5mtl

html5rocket-featured

C’est avec un immense plaisir que je présenterais pour la troisième fois au groupe d’utilisateurs HTML5mtl le 22 avril prochain. Disons que j’ai une petite faiblesse pour ce groupe consacré à HTML pour la grande région de Montréal: j’en suis l’un des fondateurs avec Mathieu Chartier et Benoît Piette. Lors de cette soirée, je parlerais... Read more

No speakers, no conferences.

speaking-featured

No speakers, no conferences. No one can argue against this, so it’s why I think speakers deserve more respect for their work. Don’t get me wrong, I had a lot of great experiences as a speaker, but I saw many situations that could have been avoided. In the end, it should lead to a better... Read more

On the evening of the 27th of March, I’ll be in Prague, Czech Republic to speak at their local JavaScript user group. Lately, my speaking gigs had the same goal: introduce people to Firefox OS.

Web first

internet-featured

I evangelised mobile first, and responsive web design for years now. Not that I’ll stop, but I’ll switch my primary focus on something even more important, something I’m calling web first! I’m a big fan of giving a great experience to the users, and I know you are too. Unfortunately, that means native applications for... Read more

Have you ever think about your personal brand?

doepicshit-featured

Do you think personal branding is not for you? Why should you care about your own brand? After all, it’s not like you are an actor or the lead singer for a rock band. In fact, it’s never been more important for you to think about yourself as a brand. I think it’s so important... Read more

How to blog more often

blogging-featured

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

Make your slides worth of showing them

speaking-featured

Since two weeks, I’m back on the school bench: I’m taking a wine course from the SAQ, and a photography one from Collège Marsan (in French). One is helping me properly use my DSLR to make better picture, and the other one to take my wine love to the next level. Since I’m on the... Read more

Yesterday, I was in Toronto to share some Firefox OS love with my Canadian friends. I was invited to speak at a joint meetup with Mobile Startups Toronto, and HTML Toronto.
