I'm essentially programmer.
I love functional programming and some OO Languages (OCaml, Elm, Elixir/Erlang, IO, F#).
I like painting on walls with sprays.
I love FOSS (ideally with a good UI).

- I was born in India
- I'm belgian (and I lived 22 years in Brussels)
- I live in Lille (France)
- I work in Paris (France)

You can checkout some projects, paintings and blog-posts on my webpage (in French):

Very glad to be here !

I wrote, in French (sorry), as I use Notion to define my tastes in terms of coffeeology! Even if I am morally sad to use a proprietary software, it saves me a lot of time!

After the strange cathedral, here is the broken door, in space. Still based on a (rather badly written) description from 2008.

Today I learned, with regret and sadness, of the death of Kentaro Miura.

In 2008, I tried to make a game that was far too ambitious. So naturally I abandoned it. While cleaning up some notebooks, I found some old notes and decided to draw one of the places described: "The cathedral of the strange".

Thinking to leave Nantes and coming back to Lille...

Slightly inspired by "The essence of Form Abstraction" and by the article by @clementd about Free Applicative, here is one of the guide of Preface:

github.com/xvw/preface/blob/ma

Error handling and deriving HTML Formlet from Validation.

My goal is to write a lot of guide for helping understanding how to use Preface!

@xvw I think the lens and the boat's lighting is doing most of the legwork here.

I always shoot at faster than 1/500 with f5.6 on a f2.4 macro lens

After almost two years, working on my free with two excellent friends and developpers, Pierre. R (Grim) and Didier Plaindoux. With the help of awesome People from Haskell and OCaml community. I'm pretty proud to introduce PREFACE: github.com/xvw/preface (doc: ocaml-preface.github.io/prefac), an opinionated library designed to facilitate the handling of recurring functional programming idioms in OCaml.

"picoCAD is a program to build and texture lowpoly 3D models. Where many programs for modelling and texturing are bloated and overly complicated, picoCAD aims to make it fun, easy, and accessible by focusing on the bare essentials. It is built on the PICO-8 platform and comes rich with constraints. Experiment to find your own workflow and anything is possible!"

@akkartik I made a sort of tutorial site a little ways back that tries to start explaining orca more from first principles - it also has some examples you can load and the tutorial slides - maybe you will find it useful! metasyn.github.io/learn-orca
