About This Site¶
This place is an evolving notebook where I deposit tiny pieces of knowledge (knowledgelets?) I generate in my personal and professional activities.
Everything’s in English as a way to practice, and to make my knowledge available to the largest audience. It’s not my mother tongue and you’ll surely find mistakes. If you do, please be kind enough to comment on the blog (or better, send a pull-request) so I can quickly fix errors. I sometimes write in French to target a French-speaking audience.
