I’m Jean-Charles, a software engineer based in Caen, France. I specialized in web and am interested in back-end, front-end and devOps.
I started working in the web in 2003, during an internship, as part of my studies. I have not stopped since. I fell in love with it. The opportunities offered in the early 2000s, were less than today, but I immediately knew that this was the area in which I wanted to work.
This is still true today, even after all these years because I have the chance to do a passion job.
At the time, being in a small company, I had to learn to manage everything. Server configuration, back-end development, front-end development, documentation writing and much more.
That’s how it all started. All this, in a somewhat messy way... but during my career, I have evolved and learned a lot, for now, continue to touch everything, but in a more rigorous, professional and especially optimal way.
As I said, I remain motivated as I was on the first day. The web is constantly evolving and that’s what makes it so attractive to me. I’m curious about all these developments. It’s a real passion and I know how lucky I am to be able to evolve in a profession that I love.
If you want more details about my professional career, you can download my CV (PDF - 108Ko).
I am 42 years old. I am privileged. I am a cis-gender white man. That means, I don’t have to deal with racism, misogyny, remarks about my sexual orientation.
I have parents from the upper middle class, so I have never experienced poverty. They were always there for me and always are.
I have a partner who makes me evolve and who supports me daily despite my many flaws 😅
I am the father of two little girls who amaze me every day (even if the problems of the second one make our life more restrictive).
By writing these lines, I realize, both personally and professionally, how lucky I am. I note it because it is important for me to remember it regularly.
