Learning OpenShift on Linkedin Learning
I’m very happy to announce that my new training called “Learning OpenShift” is now available to subscribers at LinkedIn Learning!
Recording Getting Started Guides on Linux
As I’ve said in the past, producing videos in Linux isn’t very straightforward or stable; it can be a bit of bumpy ride. But I’m stubborn, and Linux is the platform I want to use, so when I was tasked with the creation of “Getting Started” video guides for our products at VSHN, I used Linux to create them.
Hugo in DevOps Mode
As I explained last week I have been updating this website in various ways; I removed the downloadable PDFs, then added privacy-friendly analytics, and finally, I set up a scheduled pipeline in GitLab to automatically build and deploy this website every Friday morning.
Sizing Exercises Correctly
I have often learned technical subjects online or in person with oversized exercises. By that, I mean sample code or applications that are needlessly complex and contrived, to the point that their complexity hides the main subject of the class.

How to Write a Programming Book
Writing a programming book is not very complicated, to be honest: it just consists of putting one word after another.
About Remote Conferences
As the pandemic starts challenging all aspects of our life, I tweeted my personal opinion about software conferences in a thread.

About the JAOO Conferences
This week I had the opportunity to attend the JAOO Developer Conference 2009 in Århus (Denmark), invited by Trifork, the company behind this and other fine events, like QCon and RubyFoo.
Pourquoi ne peut-on pas avoir des conférences comme celle-ci, avec des mini-events comme celui-ci en parallèle en Romandie?
