I am an enthusiastic programmer/developer living in Rangiroa, French Polynesia, the 2nd biggest atoll in the world and the most wonderful place for scuba diving in French Polynesia :).
I am very passionate about discovering new technologies, using different coding languages, playing guitar, and solving crazy challenges making me feel like my head is going kablooey!
PS: For those whose wonder, my avatar is a Blue Lorikeet. This beautiful bird, which is an endangered specy, is found in Rangiroa, French Polynesia, where we usually call it Vini.
Further information about me:
- I like SO's spirit: sharing knowledge about different computer/software topics, and learning from each other. Also, I like trying to help SO users in difficulties 8).
- I really like traveling and discovering new cultures and learning other languages. Sometimes, I like the taste of adventure trips, where I don't really pay too much attention to the place where I'll be going, and where I finally find myself walking in the snow reaching my knees (or skating on the ice) for a whole day, with my old, faithful, and wet pair of sneakers :).
- I'm a guitar and a ukulele player who loves listening to music everyday. I'm open to any kind of music... well, except for Techno / Rave... :S
- I have an download speed of 20kB/s, and my upload speed is worst (2x slower maybe...). Actually, I still don't know why I'm providing this information... I guess I'm currently making a wish to obtain a faster internet connection XD...
