I continually strive to improve myself as a software craftsman. Software Craftsman is way to be in the day to day work. My objective is to develop clean code, improve code quality and avoid manual steps which are source of confusion and error prone.

I have been working in several mid to large size projects. On each projects, I have been involved in introducing or enhancing unit testing, build process, continuous integration mechanisms.

I am really focused on how things are done in term of software architecture, components deployment and automation. I do not like big monolithic softwares with hard coupled dependencies. On each projects I have been working on, I try to break dependencies and isolate what MUST be isolated.

The biggest problem I met is not really the technical part, but the human one. Generally, people do not like changes. And doing work as they always did is something hard to change in mind. I DO my best as a SCRUM Master.
