Experience and skills
I've been consulting in IT since 1996, working mostly on the design, implementation and maintenance of databases and applications for Internet Service Providers, especially billing and CRM systems. Additionally, I've been maintaining websites, databases and mail systems for small businesses since 2002.
Currently, I mostly use these technologies:
⚡ Databases: PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL.
⚡ Languages: C/C++, Perl, PHP.
⚡ Frameworks: Qt.
I've committed myself to creating and maintaining Manitou-Mail, an open-source SQL-driven, Qt-based mail user agent with the goal of innovating against traditional mailers like Outlook or Thunderbird, especially in the areas of large mail archives, search, server-side administration, and shared mailboxes. The status of the project is work in progress.
I've also wrote pgstream and released it under the BSD license. It's a lightweight API for accessing PostgreSQL databases in C++.
Customers I've been working for in the last ten years include:
a french hosting company.
an online guide of castles, manors, abbeys, fortresses in France, for visits, stays, seminaries, film shooting.
, one of the largest french Internet and phone service providers.
and its community website Adie Connect

Very old projects
Back in the 90's, I used to program in assembly for the Motorola 68k processors and
also was an Amiga enthusiast, and as such I have fond memories of
working on these projects:
- Adebug, a commercial port to the Amiga of a
low-level debugger, originally written for the Atari ST computers by Brainstorm and commercialized by a french company named Arobace.
- Assemble, a commercial IDE with assembler/editor/source
level debugger for Atari, up to the Falcon. Unfortunately I couldn't finish the Amiga port before the platform's unescapable death with Commodore bankruptcy in 1994.
- The development kit (PC) of the Atari Jaguar game console, with Brainstorm.
- Téléconfort, a modem-operated heating system controller based on a 68HC11 processor made by a company named Sonofor, backed up by Gaz de France at the time.
a community project led by Fred Fish to port
GNU tools to the Amiga platform. I was committed to binutils.
- GccFindHit: a small free tool to help Amiga C programmers debug their programs.
