Been there, done that… I narrate some of my experience and try to have some reflection on it.

Avoid these pitfalls during your next game jam (as I wish I did)

Not-megaman versus some not-metroids

Game jams are events I do really enjoy. I’m not a professional game developer, but they tend to push my programming knowledge, development workflow and problem solving skills through an intense test.

WordPress Security : An open talk with Julio Potier

During the Paris WordCamp 2019, there was lots of great talks. Although you will be able to watch those again on wordpress.tv, there was also some more informal talks, in which participants seated in sofas and on chairs around low table and discussed predefined topics, supported by a coordinator.
