Dev for over 15 years (when you like it you don't really count), I never go too far from coding. Open minded and curious, I like to try new stuff and chat about it; Polyglot by heart (going beyond the JVM) and addicted to clean code, I like to share and exchange ideas in local user groups or conferences. Those days, mobile is my playground, AeroGear my open source family. iOS is my platform by heart as my commits will tell.
