My First Blog Post

I have bought this domain in October, and here I am posting in Febuary, at last!

This made me decide to throw myself in the blogging community.

For starters, here's a little background on me.

I have been working as a developer for @InsumSolutions for 5 years now. Unique in the world, Insum is a Center of Excellence specialized in Oracle, especially with the APEX technology. Check them out if you don't know them!

Over the past years, I have shown interest in pushing my APEX skills outside of the scope of a standard application development. However, I have done it in silence since then.

I particularly like new and modern technologies, that are either time-saving or efficient for developers.

I am also still a part-time student at UQAM University in Montreal, which besides consuming my personal dev-time, is useful for opening my mind to all sorts of technologies (Shoutout to @jacquesberger who has been an incredible professor in many classes).

Outside of my geek nature, I'm a huge off-grid living enthusiast. I own a cabin somewhere in the North of Quebec, where no electricity or cellular signal can reach. It's pretty disorienting, especially for someone who makes a living out of computers, but it's awesome and I love it.

So here's a rundown of my latest day-to-day interests:
  • APEX 5 (still in early adopter)
  • Oracle Database
    • SQL
    • PL/SQL
  • Web
    • HTML5
    • CSS3
    • JavaScript
    • jQuery
    • AJAX
    • WebSockets
    • JSON
    • REST
  • Design
    • Responsive Web Design
    • Bootstrap
    • Foundation
    • Material Design
  • Other
    • Node.js
    • Gulp
    • Sass
    • Three.js

The ones in bold are those that caught most of my attention lately and this is what I intend to write about in the next couple of weeks / months.

Finally, I will be presenting my very first public session for ODTUG APEXPosed on May 6th and I'm very excited for it :)

Stay tuned!
