Once you're done playing with the block dude clone above, you may want to consult my resume (in French) or simply keep it touch with me via linkedIn, github, Flickr or the good ol' postal card.

This game was used as a teaching material to gently introduce teens to doing fun stuff while programming. Please read the source code and have fun with it. By the way, you can hire me!

Various contributions

Teaching

Python 3

From zero to publishing a project on PyPI (E.g. a Slack bot Frybot, slack-votebot). An article published on Medium: A Slack bot with Python's 3.5 asyncio.

Web applications II

We drove the students from a basic PHP application into building real and modern web application. Each group is provided with a real Ubuntu server environment (backed by Docker).

XML

Deep introduction to XML covering the modeling languages like DTD, XML Schema and RELAX NG, the XSL family (transformation and formatting objects), XPath with regards to CSS and how to combine everything into a useful XProc going from a document to a useful PDF, SVG or HTML document.

From NAND to Tetris

A course based on Building a Modern Computer from First Principles (by Nisan and Schocken) and Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software (by Petzold) that introduce students to the basics of boolean logics and abstract computer components. It uses Verilog, GTKWave and Verilator to guide the students into building a machine that can be ran on their machine (SWIG rocks).

Pyramid

A game prototype to learn C# by walking a little dude out of a dark and dangerous Pyramid. An early prototype with a squid into deep space can be seen on this youtube video.
