I'm Kevin Deldycke, a Software Engineer, Libre/Free Software Consultant and Python Developer.
In 2008 I was contacted by a Google recruiter, but miserably failed in the third stage of their interview process. This missed opportunity was a consequence of embracing, during that period, the role of a pure functional consultant, which left me with poor coding skills.
Six month later I found out that I wrote the best open-source payroll software of the world. That distinction was awarded by the company that is now my employer (so I doubt it counts).
Finally in 2010, using some skewed statistics, I found that I'm a top-1% developer.
If my appalling attempts to impress with the trivia above did not worked on you, you may be thrilled by the following soporific information on my professional background:
|English ● French||Up to date|
|English ● French||Synced|
|Viadeo||English ● French||Missing details|
Resumes, CVs and profiles above are heavy on details you may not be interested in as a recruiter. If to you these documents are too verbose and contain superfluous information, then that's absolutely normal.
In fact, I designed these documents as a kind of extensive "professional activities databases". Not as resume per se. So feel free to pick there information you need and please ignore the rest.
About this blog
This blog is a way to share all my open-source contributions and experimentations. It's also an evolving notebook where I deposit tiny pieces of knowledge (knowledgelets?) I generate in my personal and professional activities.
This blog is also the final container of all the unnecessary details I don't bother to keep in memory. It's so easy to clutter a mind nowadays... Sometimes, the information this blog transport can be life-savers. And that's when I realize the effort of maintaining a blog is not vain.
I try to write everything in English, as a way to practice, and to make my knowledge available to the largest audience. As it's not my mother tongue, you’ll surely find mistakes. If you do, please be kind enough to comment on the blog so I can fix it as soon as possible.
I sometimes write posts in French if I consider their content much more relevant to a French-speaking audience.
