I am a French student and open source software contributor.
I was born and grew up in
half way between Lille and Paris.
After two years of preparatory classes, I entered the
École Normale Supérieure of Paris (a.k.a. ENS Ulm), and I am
currently studying computer science (doing a research MD).
My future life aims are not that crystal clear these days.
I intended to become either a full time open-source developer
or a software engineer, but I may very well become a computer
science researcher, or something in between.
I have been doing web development since 2001 and more generic
development (involving C or C++) since 2004.
I first tried GNU/Linux
in 2004, spent several months playing with
Gentoo and Debian,
and I definitely switched in late 2005.
I am now maintaining several Ubuntu and
Gentoo desktops and laptops and a couple of Debian
server running lighttpd for www stuff and providing
git services for developers.

My favourite programming languages are Python,
C and C++. I prefer
GNOME over KDE
for random reasons, among which gtk holds a good
place. I would like to drop any form of panel and desktop manager in favor of a
swiss knife of my own and a
shiny window manager. Nevertheless, I
wish there would be an open source springy and natural desktop manager similar to
Bumptop, which looks just as fun and useless as
