I write tips on the frequent small technical challenges I face and solve. Sometimes, I write longer technical pieces or tutorial-level texts as articles.

In both cases, I do so because I may look them up someday, because putting in writing helps get one's head fully around a problem, and because it may help someone searching the web.

Active projects

  • PyLMS A tool to remind me of people's names and relationships, also serving as a learning and demonstration project.
  • Phanas Desktop The Python-based GUI program acting as the client application for my home backup strategy across desktop devices
  • rsync-time-backup The backbone on my home backup strategy. Notably adapted the bash script to very limited Busybox-backed linux commands

Completed projects

  • Public-Git-Sync Created a tool at SonarSource, 100% based on hardcore Git and bash, to synchronize public code of a branch in a private repository to a branch in a public repository
  • Jirac Command line Bash utility to generate Jira comments from Git commits on a Maven project

Abandoned projects

  • DAMapping A stack of components to implement object mapping in Java with complete source control for the developer | Abandoned because of exhaustion of time and interest due to starting an intense job
