I'm a french software engineer and software architect. My company drives the photo sharing webiste kizoa.com. I work currently with Java, MySQL and XML, and worked before with a lot of RDBMS like Oracle, Sybase, Teradata.
About personal projects: I started the french wikibook on programming (yeah, back in 2004 or something). I was very involved at different levels in Wikipedia and sister projects for 5 years, until 2008. Consumed most of my spare time, then. But it was worth it.
Since 2008, I have some fun with OpenStreeMap. Great project!
I also wrote a XML generation library in Java, based on a stack used for depth-priority tree processing. I stopped the development when it became obvious I was actually remaking the generation part of StAX... :-D
I hope to get some time (if my current move from one corner of Paris to another finally takes an end...) to write an image manipulation library in Java, even if Oracle gives me the creeps...
I'm also a real free software maniac. Free as in free speech...
My other center of interest are photography (I got a Canon 350D I'm having real fun with. I took the picture of a polar fox I'm using as an avatar with it), cooking (I'm french, after all :-) and seeing museums, especially art (I can't grow tired of the Marmottan Museum and its unique Monet paintings collection).
My 2 mother tongues are french and german, and apparently I'm not all so bad in english... :-). Beside France, I worked in Germany and Switzerland (where I also lived).
Currently, I'm playing with NoSQL storage like MongoDB and Cassandra, Guava, Guice, Clojure and Terracotta.
