Pinned toot

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):

I have released 1.3.0 of my project management software TAPE. It has some great new features and very proud of it

I've started a public todo-list on my website: xvw.github.io/tasks.html

The tasks are managed via a small CLI and produces (and updates) tasks: github.com/xvw/planet/tree/mas

And I display the tasklist into a dedicated page.

Found this amazing and concise styling guide for Metric recipes: jsward.com/cooking/style.shtml (currently converting grimgrains)
I've wandered to the other parts of that guy's website and holy shit, he's amazing *__*

I've start "concrete" implementation of "Task" in my exocortex!
The CLI to deal with Task is done. As other structure of Planet, it is represented as a SExp tree.

Happy new year Mervillians!
I finish the year with a French press of Costa Rica beans!

First extraction using a Syphon. New time, I'll grind more beans. (the coffee come from Burundi)

Propp is a nice introduction. But if Structural analysis of story interests you, you should give a try to Barthes, Greimas, Bremond, Eco, Gritti, Morin, Metz, Todorov and Genette in Comunication 8!

Just rewatching DUNE by Jodorowsky. A very inspiring documentary about the never produced project Dune.

Studies show that human factors most influence the quality of our work. So why do we put so much stake in technical solutions?
