I am a frenchy based in Macau and Hong-Kong, China.
I am working for a local utility, subsidiary of one of the largest group in the world and I am in charge of project management for all e-business initiatives.
What to expect here? Not much actually! I will not talk too much about my personal life but rather more about my experiences on the net and specially what I learn on web development and technology.
I am enjoying FOSS – I must admit it, I am a big Mac (not McDonald!) user, though… nobody is perfect! I like projects with geospatial stuff (I am using Geoserver and PostgreSQL/PostGIS mainly) and I usually use PHP with the Symfony MVC framework as well as some CMS that I use time to time: SPIP and Drupal.
My last interesting project? I have participated to a development project in East-Timor (where it is?!!) at several levels:
- Stimulate the local government to develop a FOSS based educational system and industry, the only way to develop local expertise and more important local support. This is still an ongoing process but they start to understand the benefit…they now have to put a plan…
- Develop a web-based billing system (CS-4U) for both water and electricity companies (gov entities, nation wide) which is currently in production for the electricity at least.
- Enjoy a beautiful country not yet contaminated by big hotels and crazy tourism!
