Structured CV

Structured CV Editing my CV is my bane, but I am recovering. Whenever I would work on the content of my CV, I would inevitably switch to the format of the CV. The inverse was often true as well. I also have challenges with Microsoft work, sometimes preferring water-color and ink. Another theory could be that I was a bit afraid to venture to the job market. Whatever the reason, it has taken me 1…

New MANN.FR on Thanks to Gatsby

New Mann.fr Almost Ready on Gatsby Technological Stack Oh, my, I've been working on this for too long a time, but, boy, oh boy, I am getting to something that is really satisfying!

I'll tell you, maybe) brings significant advantages to the table. So…

Le Grand Website

Automatic Translation This is a perfectible website concept, but perhaps sufficient for a collaboration around the Grands Voisins. It is therefore a matter of creating a space with multiple shares, with potentially multiple users, with multiple uses and multiple accesses.

Keyboard Layouts

Keyboard Layouts I have experimented with my own personalized keyboard layouts in DVORAK modified for French accents and COLMAK, as well as simply French, but optimized for programming, and QWERTY (US) optimized for French.
